Focus on: "Nanotoxicology"

Speakers include:

  • Yongsheng Chen — an associate professor at the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Georgia Tech, Dr. Chen has an extensive research interests in environmental science and engineering. More specifically, he is a leading researcher in the environmental applications of nanomaterials and their potential fate, transport, transformation, bioaccumulation and toxicity in the environment
  • Stephan Klaine — a professor at the School of Biological Sciences at the Clemson University, Dr. Klaine's research interests are in the behavior and effects of nanomaterials in aquatic ecosystems, environmental fate and effects of pesticides and metals, connections between fish brain chemistry and predator-prey behavior, environmentally sustainable development and impacts on aquatic ecosystems.
  • Dong Qin — an associate professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering at Georgia Tech, Dr. Qin's research interest centers on the cutting-edge research that bridges traditional fields of chemistry and materials science, with a focus on peculiar properties and applications enabled by materials and systems at the nanoscale.

The goal for the forum is to connect the medical/life sciences/biology and nanotechnology communities. The goal is to reach out researchers in the biomedical / life sciences areas and letting them know what nanotechnology can offer them in the advancement of their research. After the talks, a tour of the Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology Cleanroom will be organized for the interested participants.

A box lunch is included at no cost to the participants. Please RSVP via e-mail to paul.joseph@mirc.gatech.edu to make lunch reservations on or before May 11, 2012.
