 Notes from the Minnesota Chapter NAHMMA Spring Meeting on 3-11-2011
 
1.       Nano Environmental Health & Safety, from the ASME Nanotechnology Institute. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Nanotechnology Institute has published a new podcast as part of its educational outreach initiative on all aspects of nanotechnology developed by society. This podcast, "Nano Environmental Health & Safety", with Dr. Andrew Maynard, Chair of the University of Michigan Risk Science Center, deals with environmental, health and safety aspects of nanotechnology. It is available via download, along with the rest of the series, at the link below. 
 
 
2.       “Keeping Pace with Nanotechnology” slides from Pollution Prevention through Nanotechnology Conference, Holiday Inn Rosslyn at Key Bridge, September 25-26, 2007, by Lee Paddock, Associate Dean for Environmental Law Studies, The George Washington University Law School
 
3.       Where Does the Nano Go? New Report on End-of-Life Regulation of Nanotechnologies (a one-hour video by the Environmental Law Institute) - great presentations (poor slide quality) by Woodrow Wilson Center and Environmental Law Institute.  Recommendations include: urging investors and insurers to look at impacts in new products or investments. mms://summersquall.wilsoncenter.org/NANO/NANO_20070726.wmv
 
4.       Nanotechology – Nano Projects and Experience - the Meridian Institute http://sites.merid.org/nano/
Meridian Institute's Nanotechnology and Development News service summarizes recent and pertinent developments about nanotechnology and development issues. Note that summary titles are taken directly from source titles.  Subscribe if interested in following the latest in nano developments.
 
5.       Governing Nanobiotechnology: Reinventing Oversight in the 21st Century”- University of Minnesota presentations from April 2010 conference.  All speaker’s video presentations available online at  http://www.lifesci.consortium.umn.edu/conferences/2010_challenge/agenda
 
 
6.       Nova: “Making Stuff Smaller” - http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/tech/making-stuff-smaller.html
One hour program on various new products involving nanotechnology. Educational for beginners.
 
7.    Nano, the Next Dimension http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCpkq_AeX50 (Film produced for European Commission) -  This link is very interesting, but it relies heavily on English subtitles.
