Al-Quds Cognitive Neuroscience Lab

Location: Faculty of Educational Sciences/ Fifth Floor/ D

Introduction:

The PNI aims to create a powerhouse for neuroscience research in Palestine, train the next generation of Palestinian researchers and healthcare professionals, and create a viable research institution in Palestine to host Palestinian and other neuroscientists to pursue research careers in Palestine. Since its inception in 2009, research at the PNI has focused on investigating the molecular, genetic, hormonal and computational underpinnings of cognitive function in both healthy and patient populations.  In particular, we study brain systems involved in feedback-based learning of approach (of positive outcomes) and avoidance (of negative outcomes) as well as rule-generalization. By focusing on unique characteristics of psychiatric and neurological disorders among Palestinians, we aspire to learn more about these disorders to help patients worldwide.

Nanotechnology Research Laboratory (NRL)

Location: College of Education Building ground floor (2003) - College of Engineering / Materials Engineering

Introduction:

Nanotechnology is a revolution of endless possibilities. It is science, engineering, and technology conducted at the nanoscale. The Nanotechnology Research Laboratory was established in the year 2006 by Prof. Mukhles Sowwan through generous support from Al-Quds University and the German Research Foundation (DFG). Currently, the laboratory is  small charectrization unit for  imaging and manipulation of nanomaterials. The experiments conducted in the lab allow researchers of all levels (graduate and undergraduate) to advance in nanotechnology, and gain experience with nanotechnology tools and characterization techniques such as Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), Differential scanning calorimeter, UV-Vis and Fluorescence spectroscopy. In the future, we hope to add additional characterization tools such as Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and X-ray Diffraction (XRD) and setup a fabrication unit for the design and synthesis of 0D, 1D and 2D materials.

Medical Sciences Research Lab

Location: Health Complex Building (Hc009) / Faculty of Health Professions, Al-Quds University

Introduction:

The MLSRL supports research in medical microbiology and molecular biology. Currently research is focused on antibacterial antimicrobial agents extracted from Streptomyces species isolated from soil samples. In addition, research areas of interest include bacterial resistance to antibiotics and Helicobacter pylori research. Other areas include isolation and classification of Bacillus spp., immunological aspects of Hepatitis B virus and others.  Collaboration with colleagues from local institutions; universities and medical laboratories, hospitals, and health care centers is a continuous process. Another important contribution that has been carried out in this research lab is student training in research; undergraduate students, graduation projects, and thesis projects for graduate MSc.
