Call For Experimental Work Toward Atomically-Precise Manufacturing

—(BUSINESS WIRE)——

Foresight Nanotech Institute, the leading public interest group on nanotechnology, has added its support for yesterdays recommendations from the National Academies advocating experimental work to explore the potential of molecular manufacturing. The report, which evaluates the overall effectiveness of U.S. federal research on nanotechnology, recommends experimental testing of key principles on the pathway to building large-scale products with atomic precision.

Christine Peterson, founder and Vice President of Foresight Nanotech Institute, stated, With this report, the National Academies recognize the visionary engineering analysis that has been done and recommend that greater coordination be given to the relevant research communities. As a public interest group focused on the medical, environmental, and economic benefits expected from atomically-precise manufacturing, Foresight strongly seconds this recommendation and looks forward to seeing U.S. federal funds deployed effectively toward this goal.

Other recommendations provided within this report include: guiding economic impact through critical technology transfer from university laboratories; increasing work force education and development; and encouraging responsible development through greater public participation.

Foresight was founded in 1986 to promote and accelerate the development of nanotechnology that is good for people and the planet, continued Peterson. We are encouraged by the recommendation. This is a step closer to the end goals of beneficial nanotechnology, including super-clean manufacturing and precise repair of the human body at the molecular level.

The report can be downloaded from the National Academies website at http://www.nationalacademies.org/morenews/20060925.html.
