A new video podcast on nanotechnology safety from the ASME Nanotechnology Institute

Former Science Advisor Andrew Maynard discusses the safe development of nanotechnology

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) have just posted a new video on the safe development of nanotechnology, as part of their series of nano educational podcasts. The video features former Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies (PEN) Chief Science Advisor Andrew Maynard and can be viewed here.

The podcast was shot and edited while Maynard was with PEN, and includes coverage of the PEN Nanotechnology Consumer Products Inventory.

This video is one of a series of visual and audio educational resources being developed by ASME on nanotechnology. These resources – which include interviews with experts in the field and cover both the applications and implications of nanotechnology – can be accessed here. Registration is required, but access is free.
