Nanotechnology in Health Care: Possibilities, Risks, and Benefits

Nanotechnology based medicine has the potential to transform health care as we know it. But should new applications be available before we understand the possible risks?

Current research in medical nanotechnologies is producing revolutionary products and incredible new discoveries. While these advancements have potentially huge benefits, it's important to consider the societal, ethical, environmental, and economic impacts of the nanomaterials they rely upon.

This event is part lecture, part small group discussion and is a chance to understand the basics of nanotechnology and nanomedicine, as well as engage in a conversation about the societal implications of these new technologies.


Featuring:
Jennifer Kuzma, Associate Professor and Interim Director of the Center for Science, Technology and Public Policy, Humphrey Institute, University of Minnesota

Scott Reed, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Portland State University
