Environmental Health Implications of Engineered Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology: State of the Art

Philip Demokritou

Philip Demokritou

Professor, Center for Nanotechnology and Nanotoxicology

Harvard University

Dr Demokritou’s research interests are primarily in the areas of aerosol science and technology and particle health effects. Dr Demokritou has been one of the PI’s of the Harvard/US EPA Center for Ambient Particle Health Effects. Dr Demokritou and his team have developed over the years many instruments and patented methods focusing on the physico-chemical and biological characterization of particles. These novel techniques have been used extensively by human exposure assessors in United States and worldwide and helped to advance the field of particle health effects. His current research focuses on the applications and environmental health and safety implications of engineered nanomaterials and nanotechnology in general.

Dr Demokritou participated in many international Particle Health Effect field studies (US, Chile, Finland, Greece, Kuwait, Cyprus). He also led the efforts of Harvard School of Public Health at international level and help establishing graduate level Environmental Health Programs in Europe. He is a co-author of two books, book chapters and numerous articles in leading journals in the particle health effect and aerosol engineering fields. Dr Demokritou is currently a faculty member in the Department of Environmental Health at the Harvard School of Public Health. He is also the Director of the Environmental Health Nanoscience Laboratory and the Center for Nanotechnology and Nanotoxicology at the Harvard School of Public Health.
