This has been repeatedly proven through the latter's support of various initiatives in this respect and through honoring a number of researchers.

The promotion of scientific research in order to keep up with the endeavors towards establishing a knowledge-based economy, constitutes a part of the overall objectives and strategic principles of the Eighth Developmental Plan (1425/1426 – 1429/1430 H). To this end, the Ministry of Higher Education has announced the start a program for establishment of Research Excellence initiative which includes the Center of Excellence in Biotechnology Research. Such an initiative is geared to stimulate scientific research and technical development in a number of disciplines by providing support for the research undertakings that are already in progress as well as for the recently launched ones throughout Saudi universities. The ultimate objective is to highlight and strengthen the areas of excellence in these universities in order to crystallize them into leading academic research centers both nationally, regionally, as well internationally.
