Nanotech promise for global poor

Abstract:
A panel of 63 specialists worldwide was asked by the Canadian Joint Centre for Bioethics (JCB) to identify the most promising areas of nanotech.

  1. Energy storage, production and conversion
  2. Agricultural productivity enhancement
  3. Water treatment and remediation
  4. Disease diagnosis and screening
  5. Drug delivery systems
  6. Food processing and storage
  7. Air pollution and remediation
  8. Construction
  9. Health monitoring
  10. Vector and pest detection and control

"Most waves of technology can increase the gap between rich and poor but the harnessing of nanotechnology represents a chance to close these gaps," said Dr Singer.
