Nazareth scientist working on 'cancer-sniffing' device

Abstract:
A Christian Arab researcher originally from Nazareth who is a leading chemical engineer at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology has won the largest grant ever given by the European Union to an Israeli scientist - 1.75 million - to develop an "electronic nose" to sniff out cancer.

Dr. Hossam Haiek, 31, a Haifa resident and a researcher at the Technion's chemical engineering faculty and its Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute, will set up a new lab and hire researchers from Israel and abroad to develop the diagnostic device. The team's first goal will be "sniffing out" lung cancer.
