More recently, Professor Lord Broers served as the Vice Chancellor of the University of Cambridge and was President of the Royal Academy of Engineering from 2001 to 2006. He was knighted in 1998 for services to education before being made a ‘life peer' in 2004.

Key responsibilities at Bio Nano Consulting include further strengthening the company's expanding revenue streams and building its growing reputation as the microsystems and nanotechnology consultancy of choice to the biomedical, healthcare and high-technology industries.

Commenting on the appointment, David Sarphie, Chief Executive Officer at Bio Nano Consulting, commented: "We are delighted to welcome Professor Lord Broers to our Board.
