Interview: Breaking the barriers
Michael Bond in New Scientist:
Palestinian Moien Kanaan and Israeli Karen Avraham are on opposite sides of one of the world's most bitter conflicts, yet they are working together - under very different conditions - to uncover a genetic basis for hearing loss.
They are investigating the genes behind inherited deafness with Mary-Claire King at the University of Washington in Seattle, on a grant from the National Institutes of Health. Their collaboration is also part-funded by money from the Dan David prize, which allows a Palestinian from Bethlehem University to study in Avraham's lab in Tel Aviv.
