NIOSH BSC Meeting Includes Presentation on Nanotoxicology

On April 12, 2017, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Board of Scientific Counselors (BSC) held its 68th meeting.  The BSC’s primary activity is to provide advice on NIOSH’s occupational safety and health research and prevention programs.  The BSC also advises on standards of scientific excellence, current needs in the field of occupational safety and health, and the applicability and dissemination of research findings.  Dr. Jenny Roberts, Nanotechnology Research Center (NTRC) Toxicology and Internal Dose Critical Area Coordinator, gave a presentation on the Nanotoxicology Program.  Roberts ended her presentation with the following questions and challenges regarding NTRC and nanotoxicology “version 2.0” — the second decade of research:

  • What is the next emerging material for investigation;

  • Who is using nanotechnology and nano-enabled materials, and how are they being used:

    • Advanced manufacturing and additive manufacturing; and

  • Entrenched in ‘omics — compiling all the data for use in predictive modeling (in vitro to in vivo, and mode of action) — determining the low effect and no effect dose levels.
