GRACIOSA’S EMIGRANT ELISA SAAB WITH NAME IN UNIVERSITY BUILDING IN THE USA

About six years ago, UMass Lowell named Mark and Elisia Saab one of their 80-million-dollar buildings, in recognition of their commitment to channel “several million” dollars into the cause of science and teaching. The donation of Mark Saab, an engineer of Lebanese origin, and of the Graceful Elísia Teles Saab, is “the largest in the individual category in the history of the university”.

The Center, focused on research in nanotechnology, nanomedicine, molecular biology, plastics engineering and optics, was named after the Luso-Lebanese American couple in a ceremony held in May.
