Research Areas at Al Andalus University
Andalus Proton Therapy Center
Andalus Implantable Bio Artificial Kidney Project
The Faculty of Medicine at Al Andalus University is looking forward to achieving excellence in scientific research through a project for developing an implantable bioartificial kidney. This project is very important and has great benefits, especially to patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD), whose number is increasing worldwide. The project is also importance because the currently available treatment (dialysis and kidney transplant) does not achieve the ultimate goal of finding an ideal alternative kidney.
Andalus Immunological Drugs Therapy Project
