Shobita Parthasarathy pens Risk Science Blog op-ed on nanotechnology governance

Thursday, February 3, 2011

In advance of her "Nanotechnology Unplugged" panel discussion on February 8, Shobita Parthasarathy penned an op-ed for the University of Michigan Risk Science Blog on nanotechnology governance.

Parthasarathy argues that policymakers must develop a singular and integrated approach to nanotechnology policy making, that regulations must address the immediate and long-term effects of the technology, that policy must be created using a wide array of research and expertise, and that public concerns should be appropriately addressed.
