"Nanoscale science & technology revolutionize medicine – they are necessary conditions for the attainment of personalized approaches to therapy, diagnostics, screening & prevention. The depth of the revolution is not only applicative, but veritably very fundamental in nature: The notion that cancer is really a disease of mass transport dys-regulation could have never been formulated without the enabling platforms of nanomedicine."

Dr. Mauro Ferrari earned his PhD in mechanical engineering at UC Berkeley while serving as Ricercatore in theoretical & applied mechanics at Univ. of Udine in Italy. He joined the Berkeley faculty and founded the Biomedical Microdevices Center to study nanomechanics & nanofluidics. He moved to The Ohio State University to serve as director of biomedical engineering with joint visiting professorships in biomedical engineering, nanotechnology, & clinical methodologies in Italy. Next, he launched the interdisciplinary NCI Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer. He then received Texas' first Research Superiority Award and formed the Alliance for NanoHealth with a consortium of Texan institutions. He has received numerous accolades and participated in entrepreneurial ventures such as NanoMedical Systems & Leonardo Biosystems.
