Summary

Omar Yaghi, a Jordanian chemist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and the University of California, Berkeley, hopes to offer other aspiring scientists from developing countries the same opportunities he had to study abroad with what he calls the Center for Global Mentoring. Launched this year, the center is a partnership between Berkeley, LBNL, and UCLA, which is providing $1.5 million in seed money. Its goal is to help faculty members at the California institutions and elsewhere set up satellite labs around the world.
