Associate Professor Jennifer Kuzma will take part in a conference called "The Governing Nanobiotechnology: Reinventing Oversight for the 21st Century" from 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. on April 15 in Cowles Auditorium at the Humphrey Center. The conference will present findings and recommendations from a National Science Foundation project on evaluative oversight models for active nanostructures and nanosystems. The project has assessed five historical oversight models for drugs, devices, gene transfer, genetically engineered organisms in the food supply, and chemicals in the workplace using a comparative approach. Registration is $50 ($10 for students) and includes parking and lunch. For more information, visit www.lifesci.consortium.umn.edu/conferences/2010_challenge/about.
