Palestinian genetics doctor wins medical research award in Switzerland

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Lina Osama Quteineh, a doctor in genetics from occupied East Jerusalem, won the second prize in Switzerland for best published research in organ transplant in 2018.

In the 14th annual conference, physicians in organ transplant in Switzerland evaluated 19 published studies in organ transplant and selected the best three among them, including the study by Quteineh.

Quteineh’s study was published in the American Journal of Transplantation in June 2018 entitled “Genetic immune and inflammatory markers associated with diabetes in solid organ transplant recipients.”

In another session, transplantation doctors attended presentations from the three winning studies.

Quteineh’s study won the second prize in best clinical research, which included a financial award.

Her study looks for the first time into the connection between Gene SP110 in a patient undergoing transplant and diabetes, which is one of the complications leading to heart disease and one of the leading causes of death after organ transplant, although the organ transplant was working effectively.
