IRSST and NanoQuébec Will Fund Research on Worker Exposure to Engineered Nanoparticles

On April 15, 2013, the Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) and NanoQuébec announced they will jointly fund three new research projects on worker exposure to engineered nanoparticles. See http://www.irsst.qc.ca/en/-press-release-funding-provided-for-three-new-studies-on-exposure-to-engineered-nanoparticles-2013-04-15.html The principal researchers for these projects, their affiliations, and the titles of the projects selected are:

Nathalie Tufenkji, McGill University, "Measuring the Effectiveness of Protective Gloves for Working with Nanoparticles in Conditions Simulating their Use in the Workplace";

Maximilian Debia, Université de Montréal, "The Development and Validation of Methods for Sampling and Characterizing Engineered Nanomaterials in Air and on Workplace Surfaces"; and

Karim Maghni, Université de Montréal, "The Development and Validation of Universal NanoBadge prototypes (u-Nanobadge) for Evaluating Pulmonary and Cutaneous Exposure to Engineered Nanoparticles."

According to IRSST, the projects will likely take two years to complete and will involve collaborators from various institutions, as well as students.
