Lina Dahabiyeh received several fellowships and scholarships from reputable international bodies, including the Daniel Turnberg Travel Fellowship offered by the Academy of Medical Sciences, the EU’s Erasmus+ scholarship, and the US Fulbright scholarship, the University of Jordan said in a statement Wednesday.

Dahabiyeh’s research in basic medicine was seen beneficial, primarily in using new analytic curricula such as integrative omics, a field of study in biological sciences that focuses on genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, or metabolomics. The statement said research helps understand and diagnose diseases like preeclampsia and Parkinson’s disease to develop effective medication.

Previously, the researcher received funding from national organizations, participated in many local and global conferences, cooperated with researchers from international institutions, and published scientific articles in some of the world’s most renowned journals.

A decades-long partnership between the French cosmetics company L’Oréal and the UNESCO resulted in the International Awards, International Rising Talents, National and Regional, and the For Girls in Science programs.

The International Rising Talents program particularly highlights the achievements of 15 young women, who are in the early stages of their scientific careers at the doctoral or post-doctoral level.
