Late abstracts for poster presentations are still welcome to NanoImpact Conference 12-17 March

It is still possible to submit late abstracts for poster presentations to NanoImpact Conference 12-17 March in Switzerland.

The last 10 years saw an enormous growth in nanosafety funding and published research. Many of these results have gained high media attention and consequently, regulators, industry and the public demand answers whether these new materials represent a potential novel threat to humans and the environment and whether nanomaterials need to be assessed differently and more stringent than conventional materials.
