Mochtar Riady: Venturing into nanotechnology

Abstract:
Coinciding with his 79th birthday, May 12, Mochtar inaugurated his new ambitious project, the Mochtar Riady Institute for Nanotechnology, which is a center for cancer research.

The center, located next to Siloam Hospital in Karawaci, Banten, would study cancer and find ways to prevent the disease.

The father of six began exploring nanotechnology several years ago. Mochtar, who was once the chairman of the board of trustees of the University of Indonesia, wrote a book titled: Nanotechnology management style: Bagaimana menyehatkan penyakit ketuaan pada perusahaan dan menyelamatkan perusahaan keluarga (Nanotechnology management style: How to heal a company from old illnesses and save a family company) in 2004.

Earlier, Mochtar wrote two other books; Mencari Peluang di Tengah Krisis (Searching For Opportunities Amid Crisis) -- published by Pelita Harapan University, 1999, and Ancient Philosophy and Modern Management -- published by South East University Press, Nanjing in 2006.
