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

at is to come?
  • Is Congress ready to act on nanotechnology if federal regulators do not?
  • Do Europe and Asia approach nanotechnology safety and oversight differently than the United States?
  • How do consumers see nanoproducts?
  • When it comes to nanotechnology, should size make a regulatory difference?

    Michael Taylor, Research Professor of Health Policy, School of Public Health and Health Services, The George Washington University, and author of the most comprehensive report published on nanotechnology regulation at FDA, Regulating the Products of Nanotechnology, Does FDA Have the Tools It Needs?, will present the keynote address. Also, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), co-chair of the Congressional Nanotechnology Caucus, and invited luncheon speaker, will discuss future congressional actions in this area.

    Top-level FDA officials, including Associate Commissioner for Science Norris Alderson; Deputy Commissioner for Policy Randall W. Lutter; Deputy Associate General Counsel Jeffrey Senger; and Director of Food Additive Safety Laura Tarantino, will appear on a special panel on FDA regulation of nanotechnology.

    Other featured speakers and moderators include:

    Jay M. Ansell, Personal Care Products Council;
