Geneva: A number of Muslim inventors from around the Muslim world turned up to showcase their creations in the International Exhibition of Inventions held at Geneva, Switzerland.

The most notable in this grand event of scientific inventions was that even Saudi women scientists showcased their creativity. It was very heartening to see a Saudi woman scientist win three gold medals at the Geneva International Exhibition for Inventors, which is a truly outstanding achievement and should be emulated by Muslim women in other Islamic countries. Ghaida Al-Sulami, a lecturer at the College of Nursing in Umm Al Qura University won the medals in a joint collaboration with a team from King Abdullah Medical City (KAMC).
