Environmental, health impacts of engineered nanomaterials theme of INBT’s annual symposium

Abstract:
By 2015, the National Science Foundation reports that the nanotechnology industry could be worth as much as $1 trillion. Nanomaterials have many beneficial applications for industry, medicine and basic scientific research. However, because nanomaterials are just a few atoms in size, they also may pose potential risks for human health and the environment.

To explore these topics, the focus of the fourth annual symposium hosted by Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology (INBT) will be environmental and health impacts of engineered nanomaterials. INBT's symposium will be held Thursday, April 29, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the university's Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, Md.
