The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) will hold a webinar on “What’s Next in NanoEHS: The Young Professional’s Perspective” on March 28, 2023. NNI’s 2023 nano environmental, health, and safety (nanoEHS) webinar series will focus on the questions, challenges, and breakthroughs needed to continue advancing the responsible development of nanotechnology. According to the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office’s (NNCO) announcement, the 2023 theme complements the NNI’s effort to refresh its 2011 nanoEHS research strategy. NNCO states that during the inaugural webinar, “rising experts in nanoEHS will share their perspectives on the pressing issues and the main questions driving their research.” NNI recognizes the work of new investigators and emerging experts as vital to progress and innovation in this field and to inspiring the next generation of researchers. Quinn Spadola, Deputy Director, NNCO, will moderate a panel that includes:
- Adeyemi Adeleye, Assistant Professor, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of California, Irvine;
- Marissa Giroux, Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) Postdoctoral Research Fellow, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Office of Research and Development (ORD), Atlantic Coastal Environmental Sciences Division; and
- Joana Sipe, Postdoctoral Associate, Duke University, Wiesner Research Group.
Registration is now open.
