2010 Nanotoxicology Workshop

The Nanotechnology Institute, the Center of Excellence in Environmental Toxicology, and the Nano Bio Interface Center are jointly sponsoring a free workshop focused on research opportunities in nanotoxicology. This workshop is for academic or industry PIs who wish to learn about new research advances and current funding opportunities, and to form teams to pursue collaborative funding. Program managers from EPA and NIEHS will give presentations, and breakout sessions will be held to assist in identifying opportunities for collaboration.

Nanomaterials are revolutionizing all aspects of life ranging from consumer products, electronics, biosensors, chemical catalysts & delivery of therapeutics. This workshop is aimed at forming partnerships to understand the mechanisms of nanotoxicity, & exploit this knowledge to improve nanomaterials design.
