Mike Treder Appointed Managing Director of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies

Hartford, CT | Posted on March 10th, 2009

"Mike is someone with a well-earned reputation for knowledge and
expertise about a wide range of subjects, which he combines with a
passion and competence in growing successful organizations," said Dr.
Hughes. "We feel lucky to have him, and we're confident that he will
help us better achieve our mission while at the same time expanding the
important work he's done so well at CRN."

Mr. Treder, who has been a fellow of the IEET since its founding in
2004, said, "CRN and the IEET have always had close ties and overlapping
missions. In this new role I can continue informing people about the
disruptive potential of molecular manufacturing while working within the
broader scope of the IEET."

"I look forward to engaging with Mike in his new position at the IEET to
promote closer collaboration between our two organizations," said Mr.
Phoenix. "We've accomplished a lot in raising awareness about the risks
and benefits of advanced nanotechnology, and I'm sure we'll continue
sharing and progressing toward the same goals."

The Center for Responsible Nanotechnology is a non-profit research and
advocacy organization concerned with the major military, societal, and
environmental implications of molecular manufacturing. CRN promotes
public awareness and education, with the aim of creating and
implementing wise, comprehensive, and balanced plans for global
management of the technology. Mr. Treder will remain on the Board of
Advisors for CRN.

The Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies is a
globally-oriented think tank that promotes the work of experts who
examine the social implications of scientific and technological
progress. IEET aims to contribute to the understanding of the impact of
emerging technologies on individuals and societies, and to help shape
public policies that distribute the benefits and reduce the risks of
technological advancement.

Mr. Treder is a prolific writer, speaker, and activist with a background
in technology and communications company management. His essays on the
Responsible Nanotechnology blog (crnano.typepad.com) have gained a wide
following, and he will continue to write as part of the IEET's Ethical
Technology blog (ieet.org/index.php/IEET/IEETblog). As an accomplished
presenter on the societal implications of emerging technologies, Mr.
Treder has addressed conferences and groups around the world, including
in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Spain, Germany, Australia,
New Zealand, and Brazil. Mr. Treder lives in New York City.

Mr. Treder's other affiliations include:

Board of Directors, Humanity+
Scientific Advisory Board, Lifeboat Foundation
Advisory Board, Global Risks Council
Consultant, Future Technologies Advisory Group
Editorial Advisory Board, Nanotech Briefs
Consultant, AC/UNU Millennium Project
