SAFENANO Appoints Director of Operations

UK | Posted on February 4th, 2009

Dr Hankin, who has been a Senior Consultant at the Institute of Occupational Medicine since 2007, will work alongside Dr Rob Aitken, Director of the initiative, and its Director of Toxicology Professor Vicki Stone to drive forward SAFENANO in its key position as the only UK Micro- and Nano-technology open access centre with a sole focus on health & safety aspects of nanomaterials.

"I'm looking forward to joining the SAFENANO team and building on the internationally-acknowledged work done so far" said Dr Hankin.

As Director of Operations, Dr Hankin will lead the implementation of the SAFENANO open access centre, including the further development and roll-out of SAFENANO Scientific Services in occupational hygiene, toxicology, risk assessment and training.

"The importance of environment, health and safety issues is increasingly evident across the range of nanotechnology sectors and SAFENANO is uniquely placed to provide support and work with stakeholders to address the issues". he continued.

SAFENANO Scientific Services (www.safenano.org/Services.aspx) provides companies operating in the nanotechnology industry with a multidisciplinary range of solutions to ensure they can offer employees a safe and healthy working environment and end products that are safe for customers.

"We are delighted to have Steve on the SAFENANO team. His background in chemical risk assessment coupled with his recent experience nanoparticle risk projects such as REFNANO (www.safenano.org/REFNANOSHFeature.aspx) and EMERGNANO (www.safenano.org/Emergnano.aspx) means the he is ideally suited to the post. His appointment will enable us to drive forward our activities at this important time." said Dr Rob Aitken, Director of SAFENANO.
