Nanoapps Medical – Partners
Frank Boehm – CEO
Frank Boehm incorporated Nanoapps Medical Inc. in 2009.
He is the author of Nanomedical Device and Systems Design: Challenges, Possibilities, Visions published by CRC Press.
Frank is currently working on two further books: Nanotechnology, Nanomedicine, and AI: Toward the Dream of Global Health Care Equivalency and Molecular Manufacturing: The Emergence of the Grand Equalizer.
Nanotechnology, Nanomedicine, and AI: Toward the Dream of Global Health Care Equivalency will explore and articulate an expanded vision for where advanced nanomedicine may lead.
Molecular Manufacturing: The Emergence of the Grand Equalizer will be a comprehensive companion text to Nanotechnology, Nanomedicine, and AI: Toward the Dream of Global Health Care Equivalency. It will explore the concepts and technologies behind the potential emergence of advanced Molecular Manufacturing (MM), while articulating how its potentially immense power may touch and positively transform practically every facet of human endeavor, while driving global scale environmental remediation.
Both titles will be released by CRC Press.
