The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) will hold a public webinar titled "NanoEHS and Nanomedicine: Similarities and Synergisms."
Nanotechnology is poised to revolutionize many areas of modern life, including medical diagnosis and treatment. There are many synergies between nanomedicine research, which addresses (among other topics) issues of efficacy and safety, and studies on the environmental, health, and safety effects of nanomaterials (nanoEHS), which include the exploration of potential toxicity and exposures. Research in these complementary fields continues to grow, and this webinar explores ways that these disciplines can support and augment each other.
Panelists during this webinar will give a comparative overview of these two disciplines, and discuss how each field’s tools and approaches have developed and how they can inform each other. Finally, our panel will offer some perspectives on the opportunities for practitioners and researchers in both areas to tackle common challenges.
Members of the public may attend the webinar. More information is available at the NNI's event registration website.
