Ratan Tata Joins Nanobiosym Global Advisory Board

Nanobiosym®, a leading nanotechnology firm,

today announced that Mr.

Ratan Tata, chairman of the multibillion-dollar global conglomerate

Tata Group, has joined the firms global

advisory board.

I am honored to welcome Mr. Tata to our

Global Advisory Board, said Nanobiosym®

Chairman and CEO, Dr.

Anita Goel, MD, PhD- a Harvard and MIT-trained physicist and

physician. I am inspired by his example,

which provides us with a practical roadmap for bringing cutting edge

technologies into emerging global economies and extending our reach to

broad markets at the bottom of the pyramid.

Nanobiosym® has developed Gene-RADAR®,

a portable nanotechnology platform that can rapidly and accurately

detect genetic fingerprints from any biological organism. Dr. Goels

vision is to give patients worldwide real-time access to their own

diagnostic information through low-cost handheld devices that could

detect disease from a single drop of blood or saliva.

Nanotechnology has the potential to

revolutionize the way we tackle key issues facing the world today, and

Nanobiosym® is working at the forefront of

this revolution, Mr. Tata said. Dr.

Goel has forged a bold model for driving technological innovation and

commercialization, while maximizing global humanitarian impact. I am

delighted to join the Nanobiosym® Global

Advisory Board, and I look forward to working closely with Dr. Goel and

her team.

Mr. Alfred Ford, Director of the Ford Motor Company Fund and also a

member of the Nanobiosym® Global Advisory

Board, said: Behind this vision is

game-changing technology which can revolutionize healthcare globally. In

the face of growing world health crises and transnational epidemics, Dr.

Goel and Nanobiosym® are redefining the rules

in the battle to diagnose disease and save lives.

Imagine the possibilities when a pioneer like Dr. Goel, named one of MIT

Technology Reviews top 35 science and

technology innovators in the world, aligns with a global entrepreneur

like Mr. Tata, named one of Time Magazines

100 most influential people in the world. Very big - and very, very

small - things can happen.

Dr. Goel sees far over the horizon, beyond

geographic and technological boundaries, and envisions technology driven

by the needs of the greater good -- a vision that we both share,

Mr. Tata said.

The Nanobiosym Chairman and CEO added, We

are deeply committed to bringing our nanotech innovations into global

markets to address some of the greatest unmet humanitarian needs of our

time.
