We at Foresight like to speculate on the future of nanotechnology and the human body, so if you do as well, you’ll want to join the webinar this Friday, July 20 at 9 AM to 1 PM eastern time (US) called the 3rd Annual Workshop on Geoethical Nanotechnology. The live presentations, including audio, video, and PowerPoint slides, will be available free on the Internet, and/or you can phone in via conference call. Substantial Q&A time has been reserved, and viewers will be able to submit questions.
Three of the speakers are giving relatively mainstream nanobio talks, while the opening and closing speakers are more visionary:
9:10 “Upgrading Humans: Technical Realities and New Morals,” Professor Kevin Warwick, Ph.D., University of Reading, England
9:50 “Imaging and Treatment of Cancer Through Combinations of Nanoparticles and Hormones,” Professor Carola Leuschner, Ph.D., Louisiana State University, Pennington Biomedical Research Center
10:30 “Work at Imperial College on Directing Stem Cell Differentiation so as to Grow Lungs on Ex Vivo Scaffolding for Subsequent Transplantation: Implications for Other Major Organs Including the Human Brain,” Professor Dame Julia Polak, Centre for Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine, Imperial College, London
11:10 “Nanotechnology and Life Sciences,” Professor Challa S.S.R. Kumar, Louisiana State University, Center for Advanced Microstructures and Devices
12:00 “An Experiment to Test the Ability of Digitally-Stored Mindfiles to Regenerate the Consciousness from Which It Came,” Martine Rothblatt, Ph.D., Chairman & CEO, United Therapeutics Corp.
Since so many of us have to work on Friday, I hope the word gets out to those in Asia who can watch this later in their day. In case you miss it, it will be archived; see the press release. —Christine
