"Safer by Design" Principles for Nanotechnology: Possibilities and Outcomes

'A special session to highlight the science and applications that are emerging around the important principles of designing nanomaterials and nano-enabled products that are safer for human health, safer for the environment, and deliver the societal benefit desired. There will also be a discussion on how to move forward with application development and commercialization while these principles are still being developed. This event will include active audience participation.'
