NIOSH Signs Memorandum to Advance Nanotechnology Research

NIOSH has signed the memorandum of understanding with the Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at SUNY Polytechnic Institute in Albany, N.Y.

According to a news release from the CDC, NIOSH has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) at SUNY Polytechnic Institute in Albany, N.Y. The two groups will work together to advance research and guidance for occupational safety and health in the nanoelectronics industry and other settings where workers are potentially exposed to engineered nanomaterials.

The partnership between NIOSH and CNSE will serve as a platform for occupational safety and health research as well as educational and business initiatives leading to the development of new risk management guidance, recommendations, and findings relating to the potential human health impacts of exposure to nanomaterials.

"This collaborative effort provides the opportunity to revolutionize our understanding of the occupational health implications of nanomaterials and help NIOSH achieve its mission to protect worker health by providing good risk management and guidance to the nanomaterials industry," said NIOSH Director Dr. John Howard. "NIOSH and CNSE have partnered since 2010, and I am delighted that we will continue to work together on this important research."
