Top Government Officials Will Explain Regulatory Plans for Cutting-Edge Technology at National Meeting Feb. 18-19 in Washington, DC.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nanotechnology was incorporated into more than $60 billion in manufactured goods last year. By 2014, the market will grow to $2.6 trillion.
