Webinar: Working Safely with Nanomaterials in the Laboratory

May 16, 2019 @ 2:00 pm 3:15 pm

Working at the nanoscale enables scientists to use unique physical, chemical, mechanical, and optical properties of materials. However, how can you work safely in a laboratory with products that contain nanomaterials?

Join Director of Environmental Safety Ken Kretchman of N.C. State University, Professor of Chemistry Craig Merlic of UCLA, Chemical and Laboratory Safety Officer Debbie Decker of UC Davis as well as moderator and Associate Director for Emerging Technologies Chuck Geraci of NIOSH, as they discuss the importance of managing products containing nanomaterials by integrating them into an existing lab safety program. During this free interactive broadcast, they will highlight the importance of a strong safety culture that is created and maintained by bench scientists who champion appropriate safety practices.

Webinar: Technology Pathways Toward Commercializing Nanotechnology

This webinar will focus on quality control in the manufacturing process and builds on the National Nanotechnology Initiative’s Technology Pathways workshop held in November 2017. Webinar panelists will engage in a dialogue about the importance of and issues surrounding quality control in the production of nanomaterials. NNCO Director, Dr. Lisa Friedersdorf, will moderate the discussion.

Panelists will open the webinar with a brief overview of their experiences, successes, and challenges in ensuring the quality of manufactured nanomaterials. These remarks will be followed by a Q&A period. Questions for the panelists can be submitted to webinar@nnco.nano.gov from now through the end of the webinar at 11:30 AM on September 19, 2018.

Panelists:

  • Katherine Barton (Director of Production and Laboratory Operations, Nano-C, Westwood, MA)
  • Doug Singer (Executive Vice President of Manufacturing, Cerion Advanced Materials, Rochester, NY)

This webinar is free and open to the public with registration on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration is now open and will be capped at 500. Register here.
