ASRF at a Glance

Applied Scientific Research Fund (ASRF) is a non-profit  organization created by Samih Darwazah (2011) the founder of Hikma Pharmaceuticals, to support innovators and entrepreneurs in the Arab Region who have innovative and commercially applied ideas in the health care fields.

ASRF accomplishes its mission by supporting potential Arab innovators in the healthcare sector through capacity building, funding their projects, and providing them with the needed network. .

Distinctively, ASRF mission is not over by merely publishing journal articles or reports; ASRF tends to assist the innovators in applying for their patents, build their prototypes, and commercialize their research outcomes, or even support in spin off companies.

ASRF does not hire researchers or directly operate its own laboratories or similar facilities. Instead, ASRF supports scientists, engineers and educators directly through their own home institutions  (typically universities and colleges) and/or other suitable environments. ASRF's job is to provide assistance to help scientists to do their own research.
