Home > Press > Nanotechnology: Regulating the Smallest Details

Abstract:
Slight modifications to nanomaterials can be the difference between a medical marvel and medical hazard. But, there are no laws or regulations specific to governing this emerging technology, particularly as it crosses national borders unseen and undocumented. Local lawyers and others working with business and technology can hear what nationally prominent scholar Gary Marchant thinks about the issue when he talks from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 7, at the University of Dayton School of Law's Keller Hall.
