Needs and Strategies for Nanomaterial Safety Assessments

Three recent papers address some of the challenges regulatory agencies and manufacturers face when it comes to nanomaterials and nanomaterial-containing products: one outlines the specific kinds of information most needed for risk assessment and management, and two describe approaches that could be standardized to make those assessments. In Biological responses to engineered nanomaterials: Needs for […]
