Discover Prof. Niveen M. Khashab on international TV channel France 24

The L’Oréal Corporate Foundation and UNESCO have worked together with international TV channel France 24 on an exclusive series of documentaries called “Women in science”

Today, only 28% of researchers are women and only 3% of Scientific Nobel Prizes are awarded to them. This is why, for the past 19 years, the L’Oréal Corporate Foundation and UNESCO have been committed to women in science, to increase the number of women working in scientific research.


Because promoting women in science requires raising public awareness, the L’Oréal Corporate Foundation and UNESCO have worked together with international TV channel France 24 on an exclusive series of documentaries called “Women in science”. These eight 12-minute episodes will introduce the L’Oréal-UNESCO Award Laureates and show how they are changing the world. New episodes will broadcasted each Sunday on France 24 on the French, English and Arabic channels.


The fourth episode will showcase Professor Niveen M. Khashab, 2017 Laureate of the L'Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science programme. She was selected for designing novel nanoparticles that could improve early detection of disease: 



Each day, millions of drugs are taken to cure diseases. When delivered, these drugs travel through the entire body without targeting the specific cells to be treated. This produces lots of side effects and is inefficient. The nanoparticles

designed by Professor Niveen M. Khashab address this issue, since they deliver the drugs where they are needed, allowing for targeted diagnosis and improved treatments with fewer side effects.
