Food and Drug Law Institute Sponsors Major Conference on Nanotechnology Law, Regulation and Policy
Date:1/7/2009

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. By 2011, over $15 billion in nano-enabled drugs and therapeutics will be sold--up 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.

With this rapid commercialization -- and with a new Administration in power - all eyes are on federal government regulators to find out how they intend to deal with this burgeoning issue. FDLI, in partnership with Burdock Group and Arizona State University ahs assembled -- in one forum -- top officials at the agencies responsible for the regulation of nanotechnology products -- including the Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency to discuss their plans for managing and monitoring these products.

FDA speakers include: Norris Alderson, FDA Nanotechnology Task Force; John Weimer, Office of Chief Counsel; Subhas Malghan, Center for Devices and Radiological Health; Linda Katz, Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition; Mitchell Cheeseman, Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition; and Douglas Throckmorton, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.
