From Statelessness to Vaccine Development: Nowras' story of perseverance

10 June 2021

Nowras Rahal is a Palestine refugee from Syria who is on the cutting edge of nano technology and vaccine development. Once an UNRWA student, he is currently developing a topical COVID-19 vaccine, which he hopes will address vaccine access challenges, while pursuing his Ph.D. in vaccine technology at the University of Vienna. Nowras - a scientist, advocate of stateless persons and proud Palestinian - is an inspiration for Palestine refugee students everywhere.
