Nano Risk Analysis (II): What Can We Learn from Big Data Sets about the Management of Nanoscale Materials?


Baltimore, MD

Event Dates

Sunday, 8 December 2013

This workshop will address ways that the field of risk analysis can address present uncertainties associated with management of nanoscale materials. A mix of invited presentations and deliberative workshops will address issues including what is unique about the risks of nanoscale materials and what is novel about risk analysis for these materials. The discussions will focus on developing information for informing management decisions about key aspects of risk analysis for emerging nanoscale materials, including material characterization, exposure assessment, dose response assessment, uncertainty analysis, risk reduction benefits (of nanotechnology) and risk communication. 

The workshop will be held in December 2013, to coincide with SRA Annual Meeting.
