Nanoparticle safety seminar scheduled

NDSU’s Office of Vice President for Research, Creative Activities and Technology Transfer will sponsor a nanoparticle safety seminar titled “Occupational Exposure Assessment for Engineered Nanoparticles,” on Tuesday, Jan. 27, at 2:30 p.m. in Research 1, room 148/154.

The seminar will be presented by Gurumurthy Ramachandran, professor of industrial hygiene at the University of Minnesota’s Division of Environmental and Occupational Health.

Nanoparticle exposures can pose health challenges, and nanoparticles can be deposited in nasal passages and in the alveolar region of the respiratory tract. Ramachandran’s research focuses on developing more effective and accurate methods to assess and manage health-related human exposure.

The seminar is open to the NDSU community. Participants will learn about the definition of nanoparticles from a health perspective, health risks and workplace exposures, a framework for exposure assessment, exposure routes and pathways, particle deposition in the respiratory tract and strategy for exposure assessment.
