Nanotechnology – The Past, Present & Future

April 07, 2005

While nanotechnology is little-known to the general public, the science and policy communities are excited about its promise. What are the promises and pitfalls of this new field? How is it going to help the field of medicine? What are the implications for our economy? Join SAGE Crossroads, the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) and the Buck Institute as leaders in the field discuss their hopes and concerns for applying nanotechnology to aging-related research.

WHAT: FREE debate, open to the public. Light fare provided.

WHO: The following participants will discuss their views, and respond to questions:

  • Dr. Michael Krasny, moderator, host of KQED-FM’s Forum
  • Dr. George Khushf, assistant professor, department of philosophy, University of South Carolina; Fulbright Graduate Fellow in philosophy at the University of Tubingen.
  • Christine Peterson, founder and vice president of public policy, Foresight Institute

WHEN: Thursday, April 21, 12:00-1:00 PM

WHERE: University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)
Parnassus Campus, Millberry Union
Golden Gate Room
500 Parnassus Avenue
