Prognosis positive for Mass. lab
Asked what inspired her to form a company three years ago, Dr. Anita Goel, founder and chief executive officer of Nanobiosym Inc., cites a holistic worldview that is global — a healthy blend of East and West.
"Growing up in one of the few Indian families in rural Mississippi, I developed an early fascination with physics and mathematics, on the one hand, and solving practical problems of biomedicine, on the other," said Goel, 33.
From this foundation, Goel sought to bridge the gap between physics and medicine, two very different but equally compelling areas of research in her life. "As I immersed myself into both fields, I noticed a deep divide between these two disciplines that, in essence, hardly talk to each other," said Goel.
