Nanotechnology conference will focus on cutting edge research in greener nanomaterials design and production

(Nanowerk News) The Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing Initiative's (SNNI) 4th annual conference will focus on cutting edge research in greener nanomaterials design and production. This event takes place on March 2-3, 2009 in Eugene, Oregon.
This conference brings academics, industrialists and policymakers together to discuss approaches to developing economically viable, environmentally benign methods to advance nanotechnology.
This year's 2-day program integrates presentations from national experts with regional representatives including a keynote presentation by Dr. Hilary Godwin from the UCLA California Nanosystems Institute. A poster session will be held on the evening of the first day and will include a tour of the new ONAMI Lorrey Lokey Laboratories at the University of Oregon.
Topics include:
  • Greener design
  • Greener production
  • Nanoparticle characterization and challenges at the bio/nano interface
  • Biodistribution/tracking nanomaterials in living systems
