584 Environmental Implications of Nanomaterials: Biological Interactions

Wednesday, November 16, 2016: 3:15 PM - 5:45 PM
Golden Gate 8 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
With the widespread usage and commercialization of nano-scale materials, the consequent exposition of human and environment to such materials is undoubtedly increasing, both in the production phase and throughout the life cycle of nanomaterial-based applications. This session will highlight the latest research on toxicity and exposure-monitoring advances, risk evaluation, risk assessment and communication, and eventually risk reduction associated with nanomaterials exposure, as well as the hazard identification in relation to the nanomaterials physico-chemical properties. Special focus will be given to the papers addressing the interactions between nanomaterials and model cellular systems, microbes, lipid membranes, or other forms of biota as well as papers addressing the questions related to the safety of composites that contains nanomaterials.
