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.

DAYTON, OH | Posted on September 26th, 2008

Marchant is the Lincoln Professor of Emerging Technologies at the Arizona State University College of Law. He teaches environmental law, science and technology law, genetics and the law, and environmental justice. Marchant is a former editor for the Harvard Journal of Law & Technology and the Harvard Environmental Law Review and a partner in a Washington, D.C., law firm where he practiced administrative and environmental law.

The event is $50; register by visiting law.udayton.edu/ecommerce/products.asp or by calling 937-229-4778. Participants will receive one Ohio continuing legal education credit.
