QEEN II: 2nd Quantifying Exposure to Engineered Nanomaterials from Manufactured Products Workshop


Sponsored by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and
co-hosted by the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI)


October 9-10, 2018
Washington, D.C.



Environmental, health, and safety (EHS) research continues to push the boundaries in characterizing and

quantifying human and environmental exposures to engineered nanomaterials from manufactured

products. The 2nd Quantifying Exposure to Engineered Nanomaterials from Manufactured Products (QEEN II) Workshop highlights new research on the tools and methods available to characterize and quantify effective population

exposures, as well as the presence and release potential of nanomaterials. This two-day technical

program will address the progress in integrating exposure, hazard, and risk to reduce uncertainties in

nanomaterial EHS assessments. The workshop goals also include the identification of priorities and

options for cross-disciplinary research collaborations. The intended audience includes academics,

Federal representatives, and manufacturers and distributors of nanotechnology-enabled products, as

well as communities seeking to understand exposure science related to engineered nanomaterials.


Agenda: Coming soon
