Risk Assessment of Exposure to Particles
PARTICLE_RISK was a collaborative research project funded by the European Commission FP6-NEST programme which took place between 2005-2008, led by Dr Lang Tran of the IOM, UK.
PARTICLE_RISK involved 7 research organisations throughout Europe and aimed to acquire a bank of new and emerging science and technology particles (NESTP) including Fullerenes, C60
, Carbon Nanotubes, Carbon Black, CdTe quantum dots and gold nano-clusters, and to assess the health risk from exposure to these materials through air or the food supply with a work programme, integrating in vitro experiments, animal models of healthy/susceptible individuals and exposure/risk assessment.
