Registration Opens for June 27, 2024, NNI Webinar on “What’s Next in NanoEHS: Risk Assessment and Risk Management”

Lynn L. Bergeson Carla N. Hutton

The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) will hold a webinar on June 27, 2024, on “What’s Next in NanoEHS: Risk Assessment and Risk Management.” During the webinar, rising nanotechnology environmental, health, and safety (nanoEHS) experts Nathan Drew, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and Yueyang “Brian” Zhang, Vireo Advisors, LLC, will share their perspectives on the new tools, approaches, and models that are being developed to assess and manage potential risks. Drew and Zhang will also provide case studies from newer materials (e.g., cellulosic nanomaterials) and modeling advances. Jay Vietas, NIOSH Nanotechnology Research Center (NTRC), will moderate the discussion.

NNI notes that it “recognizes the work of new investigators and rising experts as vital to progress and innovation in this field and to inspiring the next generation of researchers.” According to NNI, the webinar theme complements its effort to refresh its 2011 NanoEHS Research Strategy to ensure that the Strategy addresses the evolving nanotechnology landscape.
