"Can’t you do something about the flies in my olive crop?”, Gnaim’s father asked his son, Jallal, more than 10 years ago. Dr. Jallal Gnaim, a pharmaceutical chemist with vast academic and industrial experience, was just setting up a start-up company for the nano-encapsulation of cancer drugs. He took time off from pharma to think about how he could help protect his father’s crop of olives without the use of chemical insecticides. Dr. Gnaim believed the key was the use of sex pheromones that attract male olive flies.
