Dr. Mariam Matar has had an immeasurable impact on the UAE’s public health system, specifically through her tireless fight against common genetic diseases. Her professional success springs from an overarching eagerness to improve the lives of her fellow Emiratis and from her deep-seated love of country. “The Emirati population is not that big. This by itself motivates me and encourages me to reach for a great outcome within a short time – it is one of the reasons why I focus on prevention.”
