The ability to utilize and control atoms and molecules at the nanoscale has catalyzed the emerging field of nanomedicine -- the application of nanotechnology to health and medicine. Nanotechnology and nanobiotechnology have the potential to provide tools for in vitro and in vivo diagnostics for much earlier detection of disease; facilitate targeted drug delivery and regenerative medical ...
This paper focuses on the need for an oversight system for nanotechnology that will identify any potential adverse health or environmental effects of the technology and prevent them from occurring. It analyzes the steps that must be taken to create such a system, particularly emphasizing the role of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
This report describes the NNI strategy for prioritizing research on the environmental health and safety aspects of nanomaterials that have been identified in previous NNI reports.
