The world salutes four Israeli scientists

Abstract:
Dr. Hossam Haick, a lecturer and researcher in the Faculty of Chemical Engineering and in the Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute at Israel Institute of Technology, invented an electronic nose which can diagnose cancer. An invention that won him a 1.73 million euro grant from the European Union.



Behind the microscope:

"When I was in medical school one of my friends was diagnosed with cancer. His illness got me thinking about developing tools to help diagnose and treat cancer. Electronic noses have been around since the 1980s but they were very big (about the size of a small fridge) and very expensive but not very accurate. I envisioned a smaller, cheaper device (about $500-$1000).
