Women in Science Hall of Fame – 2013

The Department of State initiated a Women in Science Hall of Fame in 2010 to honor outstanding female scientists throughout the Middle East and North Africa.  New hall of fame members are selected annually for their accomplishments, and we hope to develop a strong network of professional women scientists across the region.  These role models also inspire girls to study science and pursue scientific careers.
