Biophan to detail nanotechnology medical breakthroughs at conference

21 October 2005

Rochester NY, USA. Biophan Technologies, Inc. will be among nanotechnology industry and research leaders at the upcoming Lux Executive Summit, a high-profile national conference focused on the business impact of nanotechnology.

At the conference, CEO Michael Weiner will detail some of Biophan’s pioneering nanotechnology-based biomedical applications, including breakthrough solutions for imaging and drug-delivery, as well as other multi-billion-dollar healthcare industry segments.

The conference is being organized by Lux Research, a nanotechnology-oriented research and advisory firm, and will be held in the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, MA, October 24–25, 2005.

Expected to attend are Global 1000 corporate leaders, researchers, policymakers and financial leaders who want to understand how nanotechnology will change products, commerce, and ultimately society.

“A core component of Biophan’s business model and technology portfolio is based upon the creation of business applications of nanotechnology,” said Mr. Weiner. “Early on, we recognized the significant potential of nanotechnology to enable truly revolutionary solutions and improvements in healthcare and many other industries.”

Biophan has achieved a leadership position in several areas of biomedical technology. The Company initiated its work in the field by developing nanotechnology-based solutions to enable the safe and effective Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of medical devices and surgical tools. Since then, the Company has progressed into other areas, such as the drug delivery marketplace, for which it is developing advanced solutions in its Nanolution Division.

Biophan’s other nanotechnology initiatives include areas such as an implantable bio-thermal power source designed to power and prolong the life of implanted medical devices, such as pacemakers, neurostimulators, and other critical devices. It is co-developing that technology with NASA’s Ames Center for Nanotechnology.
