Prof. Susan M. Wolf, JD, chair of the Consortium, was a plenary speaker at the 2015 Global Conference on Nanoengineering for Medicine and Biology. The event, held in Minneapolis beginning April 19, is sponsored by the American Society for Mechanical Engineers (ASME). In her talk, Wolf discussed the challenges of evaluating and regulating potential risks and hazards of nanotechnology, and shared the results of an NIH-funded consensus project she led on oversight for human subjects research in nanomedicine.
