Walking on eggshells

IPSO is also helping to set up one of the Arab world's first nanotechnology laboratories at Al-Quds University. The laboratory's director, Mukhles Sowwan, submitted a research proposal to IPSO together with Danny Porath, a physicist at the Hebrew University in West Jerusalem. They will study how the electrical conductivity of a molecule is affected by stretching it. IPSO's funding will help maintain some aspects of the research project. Sowwan says that although the Arab world is technologically tens of years behind the rest of the world, nanotechnology is still a relatively new field, offering Arab states that invest in it an opportunity to contribute to scientific knowledge.
