GEH1103: National Nanotechnology Initiative Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Strategy
Speaker: Sally Tinkle
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.
