Iran Among 10 Bionanotechnolgy Pioneers

Abstract:


Iran has turned to become one of the few countries mastering the biotechnology and nanotechnology in the world, a health official said on Sunday.

The head of Health Commission at Iran's Majlis (the parliament), Omidvar Rezaei made the remarks Sunday in an interview with Alalam satellite TV network.

Speaking on the occasion of Health Week, the official said hailed Iranian scientists for their thriving in the fields of new technologies.

"Fortunately Iran is among the forerunners in the world as far as modern technologies are concerned, he said adding that presumably there are less than ten countries in the world including Iran which enjoy biotechnology and nanotechnology.

The Iranian lawmaker noted that "one of the goals of the country's Fourth Five-Year Development Plan document, started from the year 2005, was achieving developments in the fields of science and new technologies including bio and nanotechnology".
