Baltimore, MD and South Korea | Posted on August 8th, 2007

Avanti NanoSciences signed a MoU with Chungcheongbuk-do of the Republic of Korea to establish a research, development and manufacturing center at Osong Biotechnopolis. The MOU signed between Avanti and Chungcheongbuk-do will upgrade cooperation between the two parties by promoting technology transfer, R & D activities, and bio-product development and commercialization, said Dr. Arkesh Mehta, CEO of Avanti NanoSciences.

Governor Chung of Chungcheongbuk-do and Dr. Mehta, Chief Executive Officer of Avanti nanosciences reached an agreement to invest 20 million dollars in Osong Foreign Investment Zone.

Avanti NanoSciences is developing a nanotechnology based portfolio of products in biopharmaceuticals, healthcare, biomarker monitoring and food and environmental safety. Dr. Mehta is confident that the entrepreneurial environment and the technical expertise available in the region will allow the company to commercialize its products in very near future.

Governor Chung confidently told the press that "this deal will promote the development of nano industry and consolidate the role of Osong as a hub for bio, nano and IT.

Avanti NanoSciences, in order to achieve early market access, has identified Osong Biotechnpolis, which will enable the company to enhance the infrastructure needs with an objective to accelerate its product development and commercialization program for the food safety.
Dr Arkesh Mehta, Founder and CEO of Avanti NanoSciences said, "' Governor Chung's commitment to the advancement of Science & Technology is well known and therefore I am sure that the company's relationship with Chungcheongbuk-do and Biotechnopolis will see a productive relationship in establishing a leading bio and nanotechnology cluster.
