A Message from the Director General

Over the years, the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research has played a significant role in addressing some of Kuwait’s most pressing and critical national challenges, and more importantly, has been the Leader in promoting the growth of science and technology in the country, as well as in the Gulf region. The Institute has always been requested by the government for expert opinion on science-related policies.

Our secret is simple. We are home to some of the most creative, talented, skilled, and qualified professionals, scientists, and researchers in the region and from all over the scientific world. We are also engaged in strategic partnerships and collaborations with scientific agencies in the country and also with the scientific global community. These partnerships help promote and nurture an open exchange of knowledge and expertise.

Dr. Samira A. S. Omar
