Welcome to Nanomedicine & Society
We are starting to create a collaborative and participative 'map' of nanomedicine.
The aim is to find out how people working in or around nanomedicine see the field, its shape, and its relations with technical, medical, regulatory, political, economic and ethical factors. We expect the map that evolves to be complicated and sometimes messy. Since experts (and the public) experience the world in different ways, we also expect that it will sometimes throw up tensions, contradictions and gaps.
We're starting this process of mapping at the first European Science Foundation Summer School in Nanomedicine. We're hoping to persuade participants to create a map - or a series of maps - of their work and how it relates to nanomedicine by running a poster session.
In order to encourage participation we'll be showing them maps that we've created from documents about nanomedicine, for instance like this...
Of course we don't suppose that the participants will necessarily see things in anything like this way.
We'll report the results back on this page - which is why we'd like you to bookmark the page!
