Nano Review in Washington, D.C.

Arturo Keller

Earlier this summer, Bren professor Arturo Keller, who serves as associate director of the UC Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology (UC CEIN), traveled to Washington, D.C. to speak about the potential environmental risks of engineered nanoparticles before a congressional audience. (See the invitation here.)

The briefing, titled "Nanomaterial Safety: Do We Have the Right Tools?,"was hosted by the American Chemical Society's "Science & the Congress Project" and the Nanotechnology Caucus, and was held in the Russell Senate Office Building.

Keller spoke as part of a three-person panel in a discussion moderated by Kristen Kulinowski, of the Science and Technology Policy Institute in D.C.

Keller spoke about some of the recent findings generated by UC CEIN researchers.
