Crystallographic training in Cairo

The first single crystal diffractometer in Egypt is now fully operational at the National Research Center in Cairo under the supervision of I. Farag and N. Aahme. This facility together with a well equipped powder diffraction laboratory directed by Karimat El-Said at Ain Shame Unwenti, Cairo, provide the basis for graduate education and training in X-ray crystallography for students from Africa and the Middle East. Students will require sponsorship and financial support for article sources such as UNESCO.
