Iranian Female Professor Awarded UNESCO Medal in Nanoscience

Tehran, Iran | Posted on April 20th, 2015

The medal is awarded to the researchers who have helped the development of nanotechnology and nanoscience. UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova presented the UNESCO Medal to the eight laureates for the 'Development of Nanoscience and Nanotechnologies' at UNESCO Headquarters on 10 April 2015. One of the laureates was Dr. Soudabeh Davaran who received a medal from the UNESCO director-general.
Valentine Bukhtuyarov, Vladimir Fortov, Mikhail Kovalchuk and Mikhail Selyanin from Russia, Constance Chang-Hasnain from the United States of America, Tebello Nyokong from South Africa, Shem Wandiga from Kenya, and Soudabeh Davaran from Iran are the eight persons who received the medal.

Dr. Davaran is the head of Medicinal Nanotechnology Department of Pharmaceutics College of Tabriz University of Medical Sciences and the professor of medicinal biomaterials and medicinal nanotechnology of the university. She was graduated from Tabriz University of Medical Sciences in organic chemistry and polymer at MSc and PhD levels, respectively.

The UNESCO Medal “for contribution to the development of nanoscience and nanotechnologies” was established in 2010 at the initiative of the thematic group on “Nanoscience and Nanotechnologies” of the International Commission on the Development of the Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS). The medal is presented to the researchers who have significantly helped the development of nanotechnology and nanoscience.
