Rani Tarek Jarkas - Nanotechnology and Its Role in Healthcare


Healthcare is greatly concerned with the restoration as well as maintenance of the a person’s health or mind by means of the identification, prevention and prevention of disease. Even illness, injury and other physical and mental deterioration can greatly be affected by proper healthcare.

Rani Tarek Jarkas, Chairman of Cedrus Investments, a global boutique investment firm headquartered in Hong Kong believes that nanotechnology is becoming an imperative force behind innovation not only in medicine but healthcare as well. There have been various advances including nanoscale therapeutics, implantable devices, biosensors, imaging technologies and drug delivery systems.

We’re living at the start of the nanomedicine age. The maturing population, the high expectations for better quality of life and the changing lifestyle of the people call for much improved and effective healthcare not costing an arm and a leg.

Nanotechnology is the most workable entity that can offer great resolutions, when it’s applied to medical challenges for example, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular problems, Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease and many more.

People are ageing around the world, and elders in the present time express their great concern to remain active as well as healthy. They want to live their life in the best way they can for as long as possible.

Nanomedicine, the application of nanotechnology to human healthcare, offers a plethora of potential pathways to boosting medical analysis and therapy and even for the regeneration of tissues and organs. Better yet. It can provide customised and reasonable (in terms of price) healthcare, and offering much improved quality of life for every individual at the same time.

Rani Tarek Jarkas strongly acknowledges the fact that nanotechnology has a trump card to show its positive effect when it’s applied to medicine. Nanotechnology is making possible the stimulation of the mechanisms of one’s own body to repair damaged or diseased tissues without hassles, which in turn replace the need for transplants as well as artificial organs.
