NNCO Announces Upcoming Webinars

The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) periodically holds webinars to share information with the general public and the nanotechnology research and development community. Upcoming webinars include the following:

- On January 18, 2017, the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) will hold a webinar on "Water Sustainability through Nanotechnology: Enabling Next-Generation Water Monitoring Systems." See https://events-na12.adobeconnect.com/content/connect/c1/1305935587/en/events/event/shared/1615375990/event_landing.html?sco-id=1615507113 In this webinar, panelists will discuss the current state of and future opportunities related to water monitoring. Justin Mattingly, Water Environment & Reuse Foundation, will describe water monitoring needs related to reuse, and this broad overview will be followed by two specific use cases: Nick Dokoozlian, E&J Gallo Winery, will describe his work with distributed sensors for improved grape yield and water use efficiency, and Daniel Barta, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, will speak in technical detail about the water monitoring needs aboard spacecraft. Webinar viewers will be able to submit questions for the panelists to answer during the question and answer period. Submitted questions will be considered in the order received and may be posted on the NNI website;

- On January 25, 2017, NNCO will hold a webinar on "The Utility of Alternative Testing Strategies in Nanotechnology Health and Safety Evaluations." See https://events-na12.adobeconnect.com/content/connect/c1/1305935587/en/events/event/shared/1505387415/event_landing.html?sco-id=1628834662 Dr. Andre Nel, Distinguished Professor of Medicine and Director of the National Science Foundation- and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-funded Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology, will review recent scientific advancements in developing alternative testing strategies. Dr. Nel's presentation will describe how the connection between a molecular initiating event, tied to engineered nanomaterials' physicochemical properties, and key intermediary responses can be linked to apical health outcomes. Dr. Nel will also address how data can be used for dose- and exposure-relevant tiered risk assessment, as well as data acquisition and submission for regulatory consideration; and

- On a date to be announced, NNCO will hold a webinar on "Water Sustainability through Nanotechnology: Improving the Efficiency of Water Delivery and Use."
