UK working group scrutinizes nanotechnology

Back in June, the UK government commissioned an investigation into the implications of nanotechnology. Ann Dowling, chair of the working group carrying out the study, gives more details. "The best things come in small packages, so the old adage goes. My job - to cut a long story short - is to determine whether this is true. I am chairing a study on nanotechnology and nanoscience for the Royal Society - the UK national academy of science - and the Royal Academy of Engineering."
