An important article in the current issue of the Journal of Nanoparticle Research gives business leaders, scientists and policymakers the most comprehensive overview of research into nanotechnology's potential worker health impacts to appear in a peer-reviewed journal.
Today at a hearing of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science, Dr. Andrew Maynard testified that nanotechnology is being jeopardized by the lack of a clear federal strategy for examining possible environmental, health and safety risks and by inadequate funding for this work.
As other countries increasingly incorporate nanotechnology into products, they too have the opportunity to address safety, oversight, and public perception concerns from the outset. We all share this responsibility, says Wilson Center research associate Evan Michelson.
