Expert Available on Nanotechnology

Washington, DC | Posted on June 4th, 2007

The July 2007 issue of Consumer Reports features an article on the growing number of nanotechnology consumer products on the market-everything from washing machines and golf clubs to tooth brushes and car wax. It describes current and potential product uses, performance claims, labeling, oversight, and possible health and environmental concerns.

The magazine-with a June 4, 2007 @ 6 p.m. media embargo-also has a special story on sunscreens, which includes sun protection products containing nano-sized titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.

Who: Dr. Andrew D. Maynard is a leading international expert on nanotechnology. Dr. Maynard created the world's first online nanotechnology consumer products inventory which now contains almost 500 items. See: http://www.nanotechproject.org/consumerproducts

Maynard, chief scientist at the Wilson Center's Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies, is a regular source of interviews, technical information and commentary for broadcast and print media. He testifies regularly at Congressional hearings and government meetings. Dr. Maynard has written over 70 professional articles, and is lead author of the highly acclaimed "Safe handling of nanotechnology," which appeared in the November 16, 2006 issue of the journal Nature. He holds a Ph.D. in physics from University of Cambridge (UK). Prior to joining the Wilson Center, Maynard helped develop the nanotechnology research program at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

What: Dr. Maynard is available for live and taped interviews on nanotechnology products, commercialization trends, nanomaterials used by manufacturers, and public awareness and perceptions of nanotechnology consumer products.
