Workshop to Explore Nano EHS Research, Needs

A Feb. 24-25 workshop sponsored by NIOSH and the Nanoscale Science, Engineering and Technology Subcommittee, which coordinates the National Nanotechnology Initiative, will evaluate what's known about EHS aspects of engineered nanomaterials. The Human & Environmental Exposure Assessment of Nanomaterials Workshop is an open, public forum that will take place at the U.S. Consumer Protect Safety Commission's conference facilities at 4330 East West Highway in Bethesda, Md. Meeting participants will discuss current science related to environmental, health, and safety aspects of engineered nano materials in the area of Human and Environmental Exposure Assessment, which is one of the five EHS research categories identified in the Strategy for Nanotechnology-Related Environmental, Health, and Safety Research.

The meeting is open to the public, but registration has closed. Pre-registration is required because space is limited and there are security requirements. On Tuesday, the program will start at 8 a.m. and end at 6 p.m. Several researchers are scheduled to make presentations about:

  • Characterize exposure among workers
  • Identify population groups and environments exposed to engineered nanoscale materials
  • Characterize exposure to the general population from industrial processes and industrial and consumer products containing nanomaterials
  • Characterize health of exposed populations and environments
  • Understand workplace processes and factors that determine exposure to nanomaterials

Group discussions and breakout sessions are scheduled on this day. The second day will include concurrent breakout sessions on general issues and emerging needs, next steps, and closing remarks.
