The essay, titled "Implementation of a Multidisciplinary Approach to Solve Complex Nano EHS Problems," was authored by 18 researchers who, for the past four years, have been involved in research for the center, a $24 million collaboration funded jointled by the National Science Federation (NSF) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
