The University of Maryland hosts symposium on sustainable nanotechnology

MPRC faculty associate Donald Milton took a leading role in organizing the Sustainable NanoTechnology and NanoHealth Symposium, which took place at the University of Maryland on April 30, 2014. The symposium gathered over 70 researchers and practitioners in the health sciences, engineering, policy, and law to examine and discuss the effects of using nanotechnology in research and industry. The symposium articulated the need to better understand the potential health and environmental risks of nanoproducts, develop risk assessment and management tools and strategies, and engage with consumers and stakeholders about potential hazards through online media.
