Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say

Ethical and social issues in nanobiotechnologies

This EMBO report was one of the first publications on the matter of bioethics. It is a very comprehensive article on the main ethical questions that nanobiotechnology raises, but in the context of technology development and research as progress for society


The aim of the Nano2Life project was to build a nano-biotech and nanomedicine community through the development of roadmaps and foresight studies, and nano-biotechnology curriculum. It was the first project to have an ELSA Committee in Nanobiotechnologies.
