Due to their unique properties the use of nanoparticles (NPs) in consumer products is increasing rapidly. The expanding prevalence of NPs make it critical to understand the associated risk to both the public health along with the environment. This work focuses on understanding the interaction, uptake, and genotoxicity of titanium NPs.
