It's hard to imagine a successful company without a board of directors that is insightful, responsible, and comfortable with any technologies involved in the company's products or operations. A board is, after all, generally responsible for formulating and establishing broad company objectives, thereby setting the general direction of the company.
In the case of FluoroPharma Medical, a Boston-based developer of proprietary medical diagnostic imaging products for use with positron emission tomography (PET) scanning systems, the emphasis is on the technology side of the equation, reflected strongly in the company's small but critical board of directors made up of the company's key officers.
