Nanobiosym CEO Dr. Anita Goel to Testify in US Senate: ''Harnessing Nanotechnology to Drive the New Global Economy''

Cambridge, MA | Posted on April 21st, 2008

Dr. Goel founded Nanobiosym, Inc. as an innovation engine at the nexus of physics, medicine, and nanotechnology. Her pioneering contributions to the field have been recognized globally by several prestigious honors and awards. Her work at Nanobiosym has been recognized by multiple rounds of competitive funding from the United States Department of Defense agencies, including the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA); the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR); the US Department of Energy (DOE) SBIR Programs, and the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA).

Nanobiosym, and its commercial partner Nanobiosym Diagnostics, have been privately developing Gene-RADAR®, a portable nanotechnology-enabled platform, that can rapidly and accurately detect genetic fingerprints from any biological organism. The company's vision is to give patients worldwide real-time access to their own diagnostic information via low-cost handheld devices. Dr. Goel will speak about how the US can revitalize its economy by harnessing the global nanotechnology revolution. "Nanotechnology provides a platform for innovation across conventional boundaries of science, technology, and commerce. Furthermore, by its intrinsic multidisciplinary nature, it fosters collaboration across conventional political and economic boundaries. Building on the success of the National Nanotechnology Initiative's first five years, the United States has a historic opportunity to drive nanotechnology to maximize its impact on global challenges, including health, environment, energy, and even building the new global economy," she said.

The hearing scheduled for Thursday, April 24, 2008, is one of the first steps in the reauthorization of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI).
