The Eureka Prize for Scientific Research was awarded to Amanda Barnard, leader of the Virtual Nanoscience Laboratory at the CSIRO in Victoria, for her research into the properties of nanoparticles in sunscreen.
Nanotechnology has helped develop transparent sunscreens, enabling us to ditch the heavy white war paint. Unfortunately, the same nanotechnology can produce toxic free radicals that may cause degenerative diseases and cancers.
Barnard has been analysing the efficacy, aesthetics and potential nanotoxicity of sunscreens, allowing manufacturers to tailor the properties of sunscreens and helping consumers to make more informed decisions.
