Registration Open for NanoEHS Webinar on Voluntary Standards and Their Role in Enhancing the Quality of Scientific Research

Registration is now open for a May 24, 2017, webinar on “An Introduction to Voluntary Standards and Their Role in Enhancing the Quality of Scientific Research.”  According to the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO), the safe development and commercialization of nanotechnology depends on the availability of internationally agreed upon standards.  Such standards enable the use of consistent terminology, measurement protocols, and well-characterized reference materials, and are thus foundational for precise and reproducible measurements.  These measurements are essential for the reliable assessment of human and environmental exposure and hazard.  The webinar will provide an introduction to voluntary standards, the nanomaterial measurement infrastructure, and how the development and use of standards enhances the quality of scientific research.  Speakers will include:

  • Shaun Clancy, Director, Product Regulatory Services, Evonik Corporation;

  • Anil Patri, Director, Nanotechnology Core Facility, National Center for Toxicological Research, U.S. Food and Drug Administration; and

  • Stacey Harper, Associate Professor, College of Agricultural Sciences, Oregon State University.

Ajit Jillavenkatesa, Senior Standards Policy Adviser, National Institute of Standards and Technology, will moderate the webinar.  Viewers will be able to submit questions during a question and answer period.  Registration is required and is on a first come, first served basis.
