Format Price Qty

In this title, examine the life of imaginative biotechnology inventor and health care pioneer Hayat Sindi. Readers will enjoy digging into Sindi's personal story, beginning with her childhood in Saudi Arabia and her innocent lie to leave and study science and medicine in London. Students can trace Sindi's success, from her education at King's College to her innovations at Cambridge University, Harvard University, and Diagnostics for All. Engaging text and photos offer insight on topics such as how biotechnology can be used for environmental and health care applications. While a timeline, glossary, and index supplement the text, an entertaining science activity allows readers their own hands-on experience based on the science that inspired this woman's groundbreaking career.
