Nanotechnology innovator on NPR

When we give a nanotechnology prize here at Foresight, we like to track what happens to the winner as his/her career unfolds. We’ve been doing this with Dr. Anita Goel — now President, Scientific Director and CEO of Nanobiosym Labs/ Nanobiosym Diagnostics, Inc. — who won our Distinguish Student Award back in 1999. Most recently she was on NPR, and you can listen to the show:

Innovating in America Today

The big GM wobble this week over workers and wages and whether its factories will be built in this country was just one more wake-up call. The old world is gone and the new one is going to require a lot more innovation if America is going to stay at the top of the economic heap.

This hour we’re checking in with three young world-beating American innovators, on the path to breakthroughs right now, about what it takes and how they do it. And we hear from a big-view innovation guru who says we’d better get cracking.

This hour, On Point: message to America — lead, follow, or get out of the way.

Other news from Dr. Goel’s company:
Nanobiosym awarded $2 Million Contract from US Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA)
Nanobiosym wins Phase II Grant from US Dept of Energy (DOE) (PDF)

Congratulations to Dr. Goel on her growing success. —Christine

    Good publicity for Nanobiosym but, I cant find any information on their technology. Does any one know what the “Gene-RADAR” technology is all about?
