Nanotechnology allows scientists to work at the nanoscale-level to produce technological advances in such diverse areas as electronics, energy, environmental remediation, medicine, security, and space. As more nanotechnology-enabled products enter the commercial market, concerns about their impact on human health and the environment have grown. Learn about the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) and what they are doing to facilitate and coordinate research to understand nanomaterials and the environment and public health. Learn what this will mean for you, your community, and how you can get involved in this potential emerging issue.
