Is There Progress on Nanotechnology Risk Research?

Abstract:
A House Science subcommittee this week will summon officials from the president's interagency office on nanotechnology for a third time to discuss progress on establishing a federal nanotechnology risk research strategy an effort many stakeholders say is not moving quickly enough.

The Oct. 31 hearing is another attempt to speed the process along or else to get recommendations on ways to alter the efforts of the National Nanotechnology Initiative to establish priorities for researching the potential risks of engineering and producing materials at the molecular level, said an aide to Research and Science Education Subcommittee Chairman Brian Baird, D-Wash.
