Abstract:
The Center for Responsible Nanotechnology (CRN) and World Care announced today they will hold the first interdisciplinary conference on the development of molecular manufacturing and its relationship to emerging biotechnologies. Challenges & Opportunities: The Future of Nano & Bio Technologies, to be held September 9-13, 2007 at the Radisson Hotel and Suites in Tucson, will feature a distinguished roster of speakers from leading biotechnology and nanotechnology organizations and universities.

Center for Responsible Nanotechnology to Host Molecular Manufacturing Conference: Challenges & Opportunities: The Future of Nano & Bio Technologies

TUCSON, AZ | Posted on July 9th, 2007

Presenters will discuss both technical details and the larger meaning of their work, and attendees will have multiple opportunities for open dialog with the speakers.

Day one of the conference will focus on biotechnology, including both the underlying science and key applications. Day two will focus on nanotechnology, with an emphasis on the path to molecular manufacturing. Day three will look at the societal and environmental implications of nano/bio manufacturing. On the fourth day there will be assisted tours of Tucson area biotech and nanotech facilities.

The program will feature speakers covering a number of topics including: Tuberculosis and Bird Flu - New Epidemics in 2007; How to Build a Nanofactory; Military, Security, and Surveillance Issues; and more.

"With this conference, we aim to provide education and interaction regarding the
relationship between early generation nanotechnology and biotechnology and how each discipline might lead toward a future of exponential general-purpose molecularly-precise manufacturing," said Mike Treder, Executive Director, Center for Responsible Nanotechnology. "The world is not yet fully aware of all the societal and environmental consequences that may await us."

CRN will also make available for review and debate a series of future scenarios created by the organization's Global Task Force on Implications and Policy. More than 50 people from six continents, with a range of backgrounds and points of view, worked together to develop professional-quality models of a world in which molecular manufacturing becomes a reality. This will be the first public opportunity for assessing and responding to those scenarios.
