Dr. Ashok Vaseashta, a professor in Marshall University's College of Science, will join Dr. Jurgen Schulte, executive director of the Asia Pacific Nanotechnology Forum (APNF), as co-chair of an International Symposium on Nanotechnology in Environmental Protection and Pollution Dec. 11-13 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
This is the first time the APNF will host the event in the United States. Several world-renowned scientists, politicians and key stakeholders will attend, and Marshall President Stephen J. Kopp will be one of the keynote speakers.
Vaseashta said the primary objective of the event is to help advance the emerging field of nanotechnology in the areas of environmental pollution protection and remediation. Vaseashta, one of the key advocates of "green" nanotechnology, said that although correlation between environmental pollution and global warming is debatable, the effects of pollution and its impact on human health are irrefutable and highly observable.
