Imagine a world in which invasive surgery is obsolete, where $1000 per dose drugs and from $100,000 to $1.21 million per year in individual drug expenditures (alone) no longer exist. Imagine a world where families no longer have to forfeit their life savings to gain access to desperately needed top tier healthcare.

Imagine a world that has embraced a vision of “Global Health Care Equivalency” (GHCE) where any individual on the planet has access to the same advanced, high quality, and cost effective nanomedical diagnostic and therapeutic technologies, no matter where they happen to reside, or under what conditions they live. This is the world that is envisaged by NanoApps Medical Inc. to emerge over the next 10-30 years.

NanoApps Medical, Inc. was incorporated by Frank Boehm in 2009 with the goal of developing advanced nanomedical diagnostic and therapeutic technologies for the benefit of individuals across both the developing and developed worlds. Boehm is now compiling a book that will articulate the grand vision of GHCE. Further, NanoApps Medical is ambitiously aiming to transition terrestrial nanomedicine to space applications to facilitate future Lunar and Mars missions, such as those being boldly planned by NASA and SpaceX.

NanoApps believes strongly that robust, positive, and creative collaborations across multiple disciplines and areas of expertise that extend far beyond geographic boundaries and cultural divides will be key toward the realization of these potentially amazing and exciting technologies.

Frank describes below just what ignites his passion:

“I have been fascinated by nanotechnology and particularly nanomedicine, since 1995, as I believe that the possibilities for their imparting positive benefits to humanity and the planet are virtually limitless. Of course, as with any potentially very powerful technologies, stringent developmental protocols should be formulated and implemented to ensure their safe emergence, use, and downstream fates.

When I think of all of the potentially millions, hundreds of millions, or perhaps even billions of people, whose health and lives might be significantly improved through the prudent application of these advanced technologies in the future, culminating in something akin to Global Health Care Equivalency (GHCE), it is difficult indeed for me to imagine a more noble enterprise. The immense potential for the realization of these possibilities, and that I might play some small role in contributing to their realization, is what fires my passion.”
