The Course can be attended ONLINE via LIVE STREAMING
Nanomaterials are being currently used in a wide range of applications in such diverse fields as Health, Electronics and Cosmetics.
The unique physical–chemical properties of each of these materials create exposure scenarios that require customized methods of hazard assessment (and, consequently, safety evaluation) whether consumers, workers or the environment at large are under consideration.
The course Nanomaterials Safety: Fundamentals, Characterization, and Toxicology aims to provide participants with the central theoretical knowledge as well as practical skills to design, perform and understand nanomaterials hazard assessment. Theoretical modules will encompass the characterization of nanomaterials (including synthesis, instrumentation, state of the art on detection methods and nanosafety), Environmental release (including sources, behavior and risk assessment), and Mammalian Toxicology (including experimental designs, dosimetry, distribution and metrology, real-world exposures and epidemiology). Each theoretical module will be complemented by a hands-on practical session. Each day will end with a discussion integrating both components. The last day of the course is totally dedicated to the presentation and discussion of case-studies on all three core subjects.
