Meet us at Nanosafe 2018

Organized every two years in Grenoble since 2008, nanoSAFE conference is intended for sharing latest research results on health and safety issues related to nanomaterials and beyond for a socially responsible approach. ​​​​The Sixth International Conference nanoSAFE 2018 will be held from 5th to 9th November 2018 in Minatec-Grenoble, France.​ Read more…

Quality evaluation of human and environmental toxicity studies performed with nanomaterials – the GUIDEnano approach

The European Union FP-7 project GUIDEnano developed a web-based guidance tool, which guides users to assess human and environmental risks of nanomaterial-enabled products throughout their life cycle. One of the aims in the GUIDEnano hazard assessment strategy is to derive safety limit values based on existing human toxicity and ecotoxicological Read more…

Development of a systematic method to assess similarity between nanomaterials for human hazard evaluation purposes – lessons learnt

Within the EU FP-7 GUIDEnano project, a methodology was developed to systematically quantify the similarity between a nanomaterial (NM) that has been tested in toxicity studies and the NM for which risk needs to be evaluated, for the purpose of extrapolating toxicity data between the two materials. The methodology is Read more…
