Ratan Tata has joined the global advisory board of Nanobiosym, a medical nanotechnology firm based in Medford, Massachusetts. Mr Tata is chairman of the largest private company in India, the multibillion-dollar multinational conglomerate Tata Group (Mumbai, India). “Mr Tata’s example provides us with a practical roadmap for bringing cutting edge technologies into emerging economies and extending our reach to broad markets at the ‘bottom of the pyramid’,” said Anita Goel, the company’s chairman and CEO. The company’s Gene-RADAR technology is a handheld nanotech platform that can rapidly detect genetic fingerprints from any biological organism, from a drop of blood or saliva. It will facilitate patients’ access to information about their health. Alfred Ford, director of the Ford Motor Company, is also a member of the firm’s global advisory board.
