An article co-authored by three College of Law professors was published in December in Studies in Ethics, Law, and Technology, a policy-focused journal of Berkeley Electronic Press which examines ethical and legal issues arising from emerging technologies.
The article, "International Harmonization of Regulation of Nanomedicine," was written by Gary Marchant, Executive Director of the College's Center for Law, Science & Innovation, Doug Sylvester, Associate Dean for Faculty Research and Development, and Ken Abbott, a Willard H. Pedrick Distinguished Research Scholar. Also contributing was Tara Lynn Danforth, a 2009 alumna of the College of Law.

Sylvester publishes, teaches and lectures on issues of intellectual property law and commercialization, international law, emerging technologies and privacy. In 2006, he taught Nanotechnology and the Law, the first time such a course was offered in the country by full-time law faculty. As Associate Dean, Sylvester is responsible for building an environment that fosters faculty scholarship, organizing speaker series, mentoring junior faculty, and seeking innovative ways to increase the faculty's visibility.
A leading scholar in international law, Abbott's teaching and research focus on the interdisciplinary study of international law and international relations, including public and private institutions, environmental issues, development policy, global health, and international trade and economic law. He also has a faculty appointment in the ASU School of Global Studies, where he co-directs the global environmental governance program.
