US Office of Science and Technology supports minimum characterization data for nanotox

by Andrew Maynard on November 18, 2009

On Tuesday November 17th, Travis Earles from the US Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) emphasized strongly the Whitehouse’s support for developing and implementing good materials characterization practices in nanotoxicology studies.  Travis was speaking at the National Nanotechnology Initiative Human Health and Instrumentation Workshop.

The video of his presentation is available here, although you will need to register with the site to watch it (and currently it doesn’t seem to be viewable on a Mac).

I will try and post a transcript of the relevant sections of his presentation when it becomes available.
