Title: Environmental Nanotechnology: Life Cycle Perspectives of Nanostructured Materials: Synthesis, Characterization & Risk Assessment for Public Health
Date: May 29 - June 3, 2011
Location: Waterville Valley Resort
1 Fire Route 30
Waterville Valley, NH 03215
Purpose: Participants at the 2011 Gordon Conference on Environmental Nanotechnology will present and discuss cutting edge research on chemical, biological and environmental impacts of engineered nanomaterials. The conference will feature a wide range of topics, including; synthesis, characterization, exposure, toxicology, metrology, and risk assessment. In addition, the basic mechanisms by which nanoscale materials interact with similar sized particles, larger particles, as well as mixtures will be thoroughly examined. Transport, transformation and ultimate fate of these materials in biological and environmental matrices will be explored.

This Conference will bring together prominent investigators who are at the forefront of their research fields and will provide unique opportunities for early career investigators, postdoctoral and graduate students to present their work in poster formats. Invited speakers will include those engaged in research at the intersection of nanotechnology and the environment - materials scientists, engineers, biologists, toxicologists, physicists, chemists and environmental scientists. In addition, competitive posters will be selected for short oral presentations. The interdisciplinary atmosphere of this conference will generate and inspire research that will fundamentally alter the impacts of engineered nanomaterials on human health and the environment.
