FDLI, PEN co-sponsor major conference on nanotechnology
Date:12/10/2007

Nanotechnology was incorporated into more than $50 billion in manufactured goods last year, according to Lux Research. By 2014, the market will grow to $2.6 trillion. By 2011, over $15 billion in nano-enabled drugs and therapeutics will be soldup from more than $3 billion in 2006. And industry experts project that nanotechnology will be incorporated into $20 billion worth of consumer food products by 2010.

Yet, despite this rapid commercialization, no nano-specific regulation exists anywhere in the world. Most regulatory agencies remain in an information-gathering modelacking the legal and scientific tools, information and resources they need to adequately oversee exponential nanotechnology market growth.

Now, for the first time, top officials at the agencies responsible for the regulation of nanotechnology productsincluding the Food and Drug Administration, Environmental Protection Agency, Occupational Safety and Health Administration and Department of Agriculturewill meet at a Food and Drug Law Institute conference to discuss their plans for managing and monitoring these products.

At FDLIs 1st Annual Conference on Nanotechnology Law, Regulation and Policy, February 28-29, 2008, at the LEnfant Plaza Hotel, in Washington, DC, food and drug industry representatives also will find out whats happening internationally on nanotech regulation, how venture capitalists look at the future of nanotechnology and what the leading corporations, scientific laboratories and academic centers are focusing on in this dynamic field.

This groundbreaking conference, co-sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies, in partnership with Arizona State University and the Burdock Group, will address the crucial issues surrounding nanotechnology law, regulation and policy, including:
