The Toxicology of Nanomaterials (2009–2014)

Abstract:
This application will investigate the potential for nanomaterials to have adverse effects on human health and to formulate approaches to screen nanomaterials for potential health risks, particularly those with a high likelihood for human exposure in Australia. Understanding how existing nanomaterials interact with biological systems will help determine the risk of adverse effects in the human population and identify those nanoparticles with little or no risk.
