EMERGE GHI, connecting the best health-tech ideas with the leading investors.

With a conclusion to the COVID crises in sight as vaccines begin to be rolled out, so attention to the technologies that made this possible are firmly in the spotlight.

Intelligent conversations about global healthcare have never been as important as they are now. We focus on the unprecedented technological disruption taking place in the fast-modernising world of medicine.

Today, smart healthcare companies are leapfrogging legacy systems and increasingly using technology to deliver advanced solutions to worldwide populations.

Alif Saleh, CEO, Scipher Medicine, will take to the EMERGE GHI stage in the Middle East’s most exciting innovations in health-tech technology and investment conference. Scipher pioneered the mapping of human biology by leveraging the Human Interactome, network science, and AI to develop its proprietary SpectraTM Network Biology platform. Spectra details how proteins expressed from genes interact to cause specific disease phenotypes, proving the wiring diagram needed to interpret dynamic molecular data from patients to determine an individual’s unique disease biology. Scipher’s breakthrough approach combines extensive patient-level molecular data and Spectra, powered by the state-of-the-art AI algorithms, to develop and commercialize precision diagnostics and therapeutics in autoimmune diseases.

Data Partner


EMERGE GHI has partnered with Dealroom.co, the foremost global data provider on startups, to provide free research to all stakeholders in healthcare and tech with an interest in the Middle East.


Our ground-breaking EMERGE GHI investment forum is scheduled for March 2022 in Dubai.

We help hot-bed innovations to interact with a high concentration of capital.

The two-day think tank, identified as an important driver in the region’s burgeoning healthcare industry, will move beyond the existing medical ecosystem in search of new frontiers.

Located in Dubai, the gateway to the MENA region with its sophisticated business and investment infrastructure, the event will capitalise on the convergence of European, Middle Eastern and Far Eastern activities.

Participants will experience first-hand the vast commitment countries like UAE and Saudi Arabia have to the healthcare start-up market, and meet decision-makers who are sanctioning hundreds of millions of dollars in government backing for research and development across the sector.

“The future belongs to those who can imagine it, design it, and execute it. It isn’t something you await, but rather create.”

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum,
Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai
