Early Bird Registration and Abstract Submissions open for Nanotoxicology 2010

UK | Posted on December 17th, 2009

The 3rd of the Nanotoxicology conference series, Nanotoxicology 2010 is aimed at professionals and students in nanotechnology environment, health and safety (EHS) research. Taking place from June 2nd - 4th 2010 in Edinburgh Scotland, Nanotoxicology 2010 promises to form a key date in the calendar for 2010.

The conference is now open for abstract submissions (oral and poster presentations), and early bird registration. Nanotoxicology 2010 Early Bird registration provides a preferential rate for delegates, and will remain available until the 30th January 2010 after which full registration costs will be implemented.

The final deadline for registration is the 1st May 2010. The final deadline for Abstract Submissions is March 19th 2010. A limited number of Bursaries are available to student applicants to the conference from the Colt Foundation.

Program

The Scientific Program for Nanotoxicology 2010 is divided into sections which allow focus on specific types of nanomaterials. Each section will include talks spanning disciplines including exposure assessment, characterisation, human toxicology, ecotoxicology and risk assessment. Such a format will promote interaction between different disciplines and would allow issues specific to certain materials to be addressed. Visit www.nanotoxicology2010.org/programme.php to learn more about the conference's themes and key topics.

Speakers

Nanotoxicology 2010 will bring together multidisciplinary expertise from across the field, and has already confirmed keynote speakers from institutions working at the cutting-edge of the field, including:

* Günter Oberdörster - University of Rochester
* Ken Donaldson - University of Edinburgh
* Kevin Dreher - US EPA
* Stig Irving Olsen - Technical University of Denmark
* Martin Philbert - University of Michigan
* Andrew Maynard - Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies

Additional keynote and invited speakers are being added as they are confirmed - to see the latest list of speakers please visit www.nanotoxicology2010.org/invited_speakers.php
