“The overarching vision for this conference was to build the field of public health law by (1) bridging these knowledge gaps across jurisdictions; (2) defining (and proving) the role of law as a primary and practical tool to improve population-based health outcomes, and (3) developing a modern public health law infrastructure for the 21st century,” Hodge writes.

Marchant, White publish article in nano journal


June 16, 2011


An article by Gary">http://apps.law.asu.edu/Apps/Faculty/Faculty.aspx?individual_id=6">Gary Marchant, ASU Lincoln Professor of Emerging Technologies, Law and Ethics, and executive director of the College of Law’s Center for Law, Science & Innovation, and Andrew White (Class of 2011) recently was published in the Journal of Nanoparticle Research.


In “An international nanoscience advisory board to improve and harmonize nanotechnology oversight,” the authors recommend the creation of such a body to consistently apply around the world developing regulations on the science of the small. Such a board could assist regulatory bodies by providing a central source of accurate scientific information about the risks and benefits of nanotechnology, rather than each regulatory body making its own determinations, Marchant and White write.

The creation of such an international board is not without significant difficulties, they add, pointing out the need for an examination of the history and challenges of existing science advisory groups worldwide.
