The Neuroscience Center at An-Najah National University, directed by Dr. Mohammad Qneibi, won a research scholarship through the Palestinian-German Science Bridge (PGSB).

As part of the research scholarship, Ms. Shrouq Soubh, Research and Teaching Assistant at An-Najah will be dispatched to Forschungszentrum Jülich which is one of the leading research institutions in Europe, specializing in the areas of energy and environment, information technology, and brain research.

Ms. Soubh is going to be trained and supervised by Prof. Christoph Fahlke to learn and master some effective techniques in neuroscience including “Brain slicing electrophysiological characterization methods”. Mastering such techniques and using them at the Neuroscience Center would make An-Najah’s Neuroscience Center the only center in Palestine to apply such techniques which assist in examining the direct effect of drugs and various medical mixtures on human’s brain (in-vivo). 

It is worth mentioning that the Neuroscience Center, represented by Ms. Shrouq Soubh won a similar scholarship in 2018.  Ms. Sobh learned the “Dorsal Root Ganglion and Hippocampus extraction and culture” technique through which the center was able to succeed in publishing more than 15 research articles in prestigious journals with high impact factor.


PGSB) is a pilot project financed by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research BMBF and implemented jointly by Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH and Palestinian Academy for Science and Technology PALAST to develop a joint research and education program.
