Bio Nano Consulting, specialists in bio and nanotechnology partnerships between the academic and industrial sectors, announces the appointment of Professor Lord Alec Broers as Chairman of the Board.

Professor Lord Broers brings extensive industry, academic and scientific expertise, having served at prominent University establishments, and as Chairman of the House of Lords Science and Technology Select Committee between 2004 and 2007. His remit at Bio Nano Consulting includes facilitating ongoing partnerships between academia and the wider life science and technology industries.

Educated at Melbourne University and the University of Cambridge, he subsequently worked in Research & Development at IBM laboratories in the USA for nineteen years - becoming an IBM Fellow and ultimately taking responsibility for the company's development of chip technologies.
