Dr. Goel has a deep passion for fundamental science, especially elucidating the physics of living systems at the nanoscale. Her work in applied science harnesses these fundamental insights to develop nanotechnology platforms such as those for portable disease detection and nanosystems for novel energy harvesting and biocomputing applications. Dr. Anita Goel, MD, PhD, founded Nanobiosym as an R&D innovation engine and hi-tech incubator at the convergence of physics, nanotechnology and biomedicine. She is also piloting a global initiative to build innovative public-private partnerships with academic, commercial, global thought leaders and NGO’s, to collectively harness innovations at this convergence  to sustainably address some of the world’s most pressing needs in healthcare, energy, and the environment.
