Student working on a research project.

Environmental And Biological Interactions Of Nano-enabled Products

Nanomaterials or materials in molecular scales with unique properties are being used in many different products including electronics, textiles, medical, dental, energy, and environmental applications. Our lab (#AichLENS) is trying to understand how nanoparticles can get released from these products, what will be their fate and transport in the environment (through air, soil, and water), and how they might be impacting the biological entities including bacteria, algae, fish, mice, and even humans. This project will look at medical and dental products for release of nanoparticles and their fate and toxicity in the aquatic environment.
