Theme 4: Project 4 - Health Impacts; nanoparticles
The public health risks associated with exposure to many engineered nanoparticles remain uncertain. Recent studies illustrating similarities between the pulmonary effects of some carbon nanotubes and asbestos, and the well-documented effects of fine particulate air pollution on cardiorespiratory health, add to these concerns. This subtheme is concerned with understanding the potential health effects of nanoparticle exposures.
