Novel pathway to enhance performance of Solar Cells

The silicon surface is covered with a thin layer of packed glass where the patterns are made with periodic microfluidic spacers which contribute to increasing the absorption of photons within the silicon surface. The new technology has contributed in enhancing the electrical efficiency of solar cells to a 25% more than traditional similar technologies

New scientific findings regarding the HCV treatment

These findings prompt the medical community for the need of long-term follow up and patient stratifications (personalized medicine), despite efficient viral clearance.

Novel approach to boost the catalytic activity of precious metals

This research aims to reduce the high cost of one of the most active materials used in catalysis in general, the platinum. Favorable impact on the cost of systems like fuel cells and electrolyzers essential in the hydrogen economy is expected from this research.

Removing Chromium from Waste-water effectively

The research aims to report the synthesis of a metal organic framework on silica particles as a simple, cost-effective material to be used to remove chromium from waste water, which is a major source of water pollution and a carcinogen.

Novel nanoformulations for efficient delivery of Doxorubicin to the brain

Doxorubicin is among the most commonly used chemotherapeutic agents for treatment of various types of tumors because of its high potency against cancer cells and its relatively low cost. However, its use for the treatment of brain tumors was not possible because of the blood brain barrier which prevents completely any hydrophilic drugs as doxorubicin from reaching the brain. 

Innovative Technology for Drug Delivery for the Treatment of Eye Diseases and as an Alternative to Traditional Methods

Many ophthalmology patients face some problems that are related to the usage of eye drops. Many patients, for instance, do not recognize that the eye drops may lose their efficiency a few weeks after its opening or due to inconvenient storage. In addition, some studies proved that only 5% of the dose reaches the patient, as he/she loses around 95% of the dose during the administration due to the low viscosity of the eye drops. 

Center for Genomics Publishes a New Article Entitled: Choose your Yeast Strain Carefully: the RAD5 Gene Matters

The article addresses a very important issue that was not properly handled previously. Budding yeast has been established as a model organism to study cellular processes for decades.

Zewail City New Researches Receive International Acclaim

Considered as a great success in their fields, both researches have been conducted in the Center for Materials Science in Zewail City by the in house team of researchers and under the leadership of Dr. Mohamed Alkordi, head of the Egyptian research team at Zewail City of Science and Technology, along with significant contribution from other local and international affiliations.

To Live or to Die: Scientists Unravel How DNA Repair Guards us Against Motor Neuron Disease

Dementia and Motor neuron disease (MND) are among the most common neurodegenerative disorders in Egypt, affecting people in the middle of their active life.

Unraveling the Mystery of DNA Attacks in Cells’ Powerhouse could Pave Way for New Cancer Treatments

Work led by Dr Sherif El-Khamisy, Director of the Center of Genomics at Zewail City & Chair of Molecular Medicine at the University of Sheffield, in collaboration with the University of Sussex, University of Newcastle and St Jude hospital in the US unravels the mystery of DNA attacks in cells’ powerhouse - the mitochondria -  providing novel avenues to tackle neurodegenerative diseases and cancer.
