Panel Discusses Ethics in Science

Abstract:
Last Thursday, a group of researchers convened in the Biotechnology building to discuss the social and ethical issues surrounding Nanoscience. The panel discussion, the first of a series sponsored by the Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network and the Cornell Center for Nanoscale Systems, featured four prominent speakers in the field of Science and Technology Studies. Issues analyzed by the quartet of Cornell scientists included the rhetoric of nanotechnology, the early history of nanotech, and engineering and research ethics in nanotechnology.
