Home > Press > TOMORROW: U.S. EPA Chief travels to Los Angeles to tour UCLA Lab where more than $24 Million of Federal Funding will Finance Futuristic Innovations in Nanotechnology Federal funding at work to finance technology innovation and more than 100 green jobs

Abstract:
On Friday February 17th, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa P. Jackson will join scientists, faculty, technology innovators and students at the University of California, Los Angeles to tour its Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology. The center has been awarded a $24 million grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Science Foundation, and is working to train the next generation of nano-scale scientists and engineers. The facility is one of the nation's only centers researching predictive toxicology of nanomaterials, and is developing a new approach to identify impacts and environmental hazards of nanomaterials before they become widely used in the environment.
