Is science engaging with the public on nanotechnology?

Abstract:
Governments, academics and commercial bodies are all waiting to see if developments in nanotechnology will cause the same uproar as that generated by the biotech industry.

A University of Leicester academic, Professor Rachel Gibson, has been working on a study of the rise and expansion of debate on the nanotechnology issue online, and she will present her findings to the annual meeting of the International Communication Association in May 2007.

Nanotechnology - the science of ‘small' things - is a rapidly growing area of scientific research and development, uniting experts from fields including physics, materials science, mechanical and electrical engineering, genetics, cell biology to name a few.
