Nanomedicine in Healthcare


This forum explores nanotechnology-enabled medical technologies and their potential to transform health care, while considering the societal, ethical, environmental and economic impacts of this emerging technology. This forum asks participants to consider and discuss two nanotechnology application scenarios and the possible opportunities, impacts, risks, and benefits. They will also have the opportunity to raise questions about the societal and environmental implications of nanotechnology to a panel of experts. Forum participants will deliberate in small groups and create a group response to the overarching question, “Under what conditions should nanotechnology applications in medicine and personal care products be made available to the public? Why?” Finally, each group will make a brief report to everyone on the group’s thoughts and recommendations
