Future of nanotechnology discussed by experts

Boston, Mass. December 13, 2006 -- Many people believe nanotechnology will be the key to solving many of the world's most pressing medical problems, while others believe it could lead to a potential disaster. The current issue of The Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics addresses this issue in all its aspects.

This discussion goes a long way towards righting us on the path towards a more measured discussion about the prospects of nanotech in our lives, says Ted Hutchinson, editor of the journal. Without either fanning the flames of fear that always accompany the unknown, or resisting the necessary critical questions that must be asked of new technology, this symposium will bring us a step closer to understanding the critical role nanotech will play in the future of medicine and law, and steer us towards the questions we must ask.
