Project On Emerging Nanotechnologies: The Role of The Pew Charitable Trusts

  • April 27, 2005

Nanotechnologies have been hailed by many as the next industrial revolution, likely to change everything from the cars we drive to the clothes we wear to the medical treatments our doctors can offer. Although focused on the very small, nanotechnologies offer tremendous benefits. From new cancer therapies to pollution-eating compounds, from more durable consumer products to detectors for biohazards like anthrax, nanotechnologies are changing the way people think about the future.

The Project will collaborate with industry, government, researchers and others to look long term, identify gaps in knowledge and regulatory processes, and develop strategies for closing them.
