"We are very pleased to have Ori join the NanoSono family," said chairman of the company's board of directors Aaron Gorovitz. Ori brings with him extensive and wide-ranging experience and we are confident that he will contribute significantly to the strategic change from a company that has so far focused on R&D to a company that will transfer knowledge and technology to strategic partners and executes projects in Israel and abroad."
He added that "NanoSono has developed revolutionary technology that could be key to one of the greatest health threats of today - infections due to bacteria. Behind the technology is a professional, scientific, creative and skilled team, and we have no doubt that led by Bar Chaim, Nanosano will expand its activities in the international markets in the very near future."
