NNI Public Webinar - NanoEHS and Nanomedicine: Similarities and Synergisms

–  20 August 2018
Date: 20 August 2018
Time: 19:00

The U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative is holding a public webinar on the similarities and synergisms of nanoEHS and nanomedicine on August 20th at 2:00pm EDT (7:00pm BST).

There are many synergies between nanomedicine research, which addresses issues of efficacy and safety, and studies on the environmental, health, and safety effects of nanomaterials (nanoEHS), which include the exploration of potential toxicity and exposures. Research in these complementary fields continues to grow, and this webinar explores ways that these disciplines can support and augment each other.

Panelists during this webinar will give a comparative overview of these two disciplines, and discuss how each field’s tools and approaches have developed and how they can inform each other. Finally, our panel will offer some perspectives on the opportunities for practitioners and researchers in both areas to tackle common challenges.

The panel will be moderated by Dr. Mark Hoover (Senior Research Scientist, National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH) and Dr. Christina Liu (Program Director, Nanodelivery Systems and Devices Branch, Cancer Imaging Program, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health).

Panelists:

  • Dr. Hamid Ghandehari (Professor of Bioengineering, University of Utah)
  • Dr. Christine Payne (Associate Professor, Duke University)
  • Dr. Monika Mortimer (Project Scientist, Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, UCSB)
