Forum on Nanotechnology at Exploratorium:
Nanotechnology in Health Care: Possibilities, Risks, and Benefits
Nanotechnology-enabled medical technologies have 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. Join us in this important discussion.
