Penton Media and the NanoBusiness Alliance today announced that the 3rd annual NanoBusiness 2004, Nanotechnology's Foremost Business Conference, has bolstered its lineup of preeminent keynote speakers and is pleased to present one of the true leaders of nanotechnology in the Federal Government. Senator Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) co-wrote the 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act, which was signed into law last year.
