Scientists need to heed public now

For the past three months the Nanoscience Centre at the University of Cambridge has been the site of an unusual experiment. Situated on the outskirts of the city, the laboratory houses 120 scientists developing applications at the frontiers of nanotechnology. In June it broke with convention by appointing Rob Doubleday as its first lab-based sociologist. His task is to help colleagues reflect on social and ethical implications of their research on technology on a scale of billionths of a metre.
