Nanotechnology Safety Concerns in spotlight at nanoTX'07

Dallas, TX | Posted on August 23rd, 2007

A 2007 update, including the most recent information regarding NanoSafe projects, research findings/lessons learned, and outreach/collaboration activities will be featured at the Dallas Convention Center during International Nanotechnology Week.

The NanoSafe approach was first described in a joint NIOSH/industry presentation at the 2005 Second International Symposium on Nanotechnology and Occupational Health (Minneapolis, MN).

Matthew S. Hull, currently an NSF IGERT fellow in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Virginia Tech (Blacksburg, VA), will present the findings. For the last four years, Hull has served as Principal Investigator at Luna Innovations Incorporated (Blacksburg, VA), where his research has focused on developing technologies and strategies to protect human and environmental health. In 2003, Hull developed the concept for the NanoSafe framework, which provides a practical and integrated approach for proactively addressing nanotechnology environmental health and safety issues in nanotechnology facilities (particularly small businesses). Hull's research programs explore applications and implications of engineered nanomaterials in environmental systems for agencies such as the US DOD, EPA, NASA, NOAA, and DEFRA (UK).

The special presentation will be featured during the nanoTX'07 Conference and Exposition taking place Oct. 3-4. Check the website for updated time and day, http://www.nanotx.biz
