Researcher Haneen Noman Jaradat, a student in the Master’s Program in Physics, has defended her thesis titled "Relaxation Dynamics in Quantum-dot Laser Subjected to External Effect (Optical Feedback)".

This research explores quantum-dot lasers that use quantum dots as active materials. Quantum-dot lasers operate based on tight confinement of charge carriers in quantum-dots, where a wide range of applications in medical imaging, sensing, quantum information processing and optical communications are found. Due to its vital role in disease treatment and optical imaging, in addition to its high capacity in data processing, new approaches are being used to improve its performance.

Defense of a Master’s Thesis by Ahlam Abdullah in the Contemporary Public Relations Program

Researcher Ahlam Ibrahim Abdullah, a student in the Master’s program in Contemporary Public Relations, has defended her thesis titled “Religious Diplomacy: Framing Israeli Propaganda for the Abraham Accords via Social Media Platforms.”

This study aimed to identify how Israel frames the Abraham Accords religiously through its digital propaganda directed to the Arab public, on the “People of the Book” platforms on YouTube and “Israel in the Gulf” on Twitter. The reason for choosing two platforms that differ in identity and content is the importance of researching the framing mechanisms and appeals that Israel employs to address the Arab public through its direct and indirect propaganda.

Defense of a Master’s Thesis by Rawan Obaid in the Molecular Genetics and Genetic Toxicology Program

Researcher Rawan Nael Obaid, a student in the Master’s program in Molecular Genetics and Genetic Toxicology, has defended her thesis titled "Functional Assessment of a Novel Mutation (SMAD4, p. Cys115Arg) in Palestinian Patient with Colorectal Cancer".

Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer and the second most common cause of death worldwide. In the State of Palestine, it is the second most common cancer after breast cancer. Because of this widespread prevalence, detecting the causes of colon cancer has become essential. Genetic tests have become one of the most important and advanced methods for detecting cancer and to help determine the course of treatment. In this study, next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology was used to identify genetic variants that contribute to tumors in colorectal cancer.
