Abstract:
Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C), B&C Consortia Management, L.L.C. (BCCM), The Acta Group, L.L.C. (Acta), and The Acta Group EU, Ltd (Acta EU) are pleased to announce that on August 9, 2011, Lynn L. Bergeson will speak in Boston, Massachusetts, at the Fifth International Symposium on Nanotechnology, Occupational and Environmental Health (NanOEH) on key policy and regulatory considerations related to nanotechnology. The program will focus on life cycle assessment: what assessment tools and options are appropriate for nanomaterials; nanoinformatics: how to get the needed information for meaningful assessments; and policy and regulatory matters: what is the current landscape. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is a co-sponsor of this event.

Nanotechnology Now's columnist Lynn L. Bergeson will speak at the fifth international symposium on nanotechnology, occupational and environmental health

Washington, DC | Posted on August 1st, 2011

B&C has made a concerted effort to be in the forefront of the science policy debate involving nanotechnologies and other emerging technologies. Ms. Bergeson and other professionals at B&C counsel clients on health, safety, science policy, and related legal and regulatory aspects of nanotechnology and emerging transformative technologies, and on more traditional chemical product approval matters. Ms. Bergeson serves on a number of domestic and international nanotechnology standard setting and governance committees, and writes and lectures frequently on nano-related topics. Recent publications include: Nanotechnology: Environmental Law, Policy, and Business Considerations, ABA (2010); 'New on the Horizon: Nanotechnology,' in Product Liability, ABA (2010) (co-author); Nanotechnology and the Environment, CRC Press (2008) (co-author); and Nanotechnology Deskbook, ELI (2007) (co-author). Ms. Bergeson writes frequently on emerging technologies, and is a regular contributor to the Nanotechnology Industries Association's (NIA) Newsletter (the Newsletter is free to NIA members; subscriptions are available online) and to Nanotechnology Now (available online).
