For the first time, top officials at the agencies responsible for the regulation of nanotechnology products  — including the Food and Drug Administration, Environmental Protection Agency, Occupational Safety and Health Administration and Department of Agriculture — will meet at a Food and Drug Law Institute conference to discuss their plans for managing and monitoring these products.

At the Food and Drug Law Institute's 1st Annual Conference on Nanotechnology Law, Regulation and Policy, February 28-29, 2008, food and drug industry representatives also will find out what's happening internationally on nanotech regulation, how venture capitalists look at the future of nanotechnology and what the leading corporations, scientific laboratories and academic centers are focusing on in this dynamic field.

This groundbreaking conference, co-sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars' Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies, in partnership with Arizona State University and the Burdock Group, will address the crucial issues surrounding nanotechnology law, regulation and policy.
