SESHA 2012 Symposium Abstract

Engineered Nanoparticles and health: Recent Findings and Developments

Kelly, Rick
(Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory)

The nanotechnology revolution in science, medicine, engineering and manufacturing continues to grow, expanding into more and more research and manufacturing organizations. Our understanding of the occupational, community and environmental health risks associated with engineered nanoscale particulate matter also continues to expand. We are learning more about nanotoxicology, real world exposure to engineered nanoparticles and exposure control strategies. This presentation will update you on recent findings in toxicology and exposure assessment, trends in regulation and exposure measurement strategies, including a review of recommended exposure limits for nanoparticles.
