Marchant to deliver plenary talk at nano conference

Phoenix, AZ | Posted on March 30th, 2010

Marchant, the ASU Lincoln Professor of Emerging Technologies, Law and Ethics, will discuss, "Risk Management of Nanotechnology," at the conference, "Risk Management Methods & Societal, Ethical, and Legal Implications of Nanotechnology," sponsored by the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI). Marchant and Greg Lowry, associate professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, will participate in the plenary session, "Two Risk Management Methods Perspectives: Where we are? Where do we need to go?"

The NNI serves as the central point of communication, cooperation and collaboration for all federal agencies engaged in nanotechnology research, bringing together the expertise needed to advance this broad and complex field. Its meetings' series enable the NNI to assess progress in environmental, health and safety research and identify gaps and emerging trends.

Marchant's research interests include the use of genetic information in environmental regulation, risk and the precautionary principle, legal aspects of personalized medicine, and regulation of emerging technologies such as nanotechnology, neuroscience and biotechnology. He teaches courses in Environmental Law, Law, Science & Technology, Genetics and the Law, Biotechnology: Science, Law and Policy, and Nanotechnology Law & Policy. Marchant also is a professor in ASU's School of Life Sciences.
