Boehm is CEO of NanoApps Medical and Editor of
Nanomedical Device and Systems Design: Challenges,
Frank has been involved with nanotechnology and especially nanomedicine since 1996, and has been evolving numerous concepts and designs for advanced nanomedical diagnostic and therapeutic components, devices, and systems to address myriad disease states. His aim is to develop and transform these concepts into real world applications for global benefit.
Frank serendipitously encountered the concept of nanotechnology on the Internet in 1996 and immediately become fascinated with its virtually limitless potential, particularly as it relates to the field of medicine. He passionately proceeded to evolve and textually articulate, a number of advanced concepts and designs toward near-term and longer-term nanomedical components, devices, and systems. Concomitantly, he initiated relationships with myriad research scientists and thought leaders in the disciplines of nanotechnology and nanomedicine, from across the globe.
In recognizing the immense potential of nanomedicine to impart positive paradigm shifts across the medical domain (e.g., precisely targeted drug delivery, vascular/neurological/cellular plaque removal, completely non-invasive surgical procedures, physiological systems and longevity enhancement), he was deeply motivated to write more extensively on the topic. In 2005, he garnered a publishing contract with CRC Press, and over the ensuing eight years compiled a book manuscript (along with seven contributing authors) entitled Nanomedical Device and Systems Design: Challenges, Possibilities, Visions.
In parallel, he managed to engage the interest of several researchers in the US and Canada in his nanomedical concepts, and in 2009 formed the startup, NanoApps Medical. The aim of this company is to investigate and develop advanced, innovative, and cost-effective nanomedical diagnostic and therapeutic devices and systems for the benefit of individuals in both the developing and developed worlds.
