Workshop on Synthesis, Characterization and Safety Assessment of Nanomaterials

A workshop on Synthesis, Characterization and Safety Assessment of Nanomaterials was inaugurated at the city based premier toxicology institute of the country, CSIR – Indian Institute of Toxicology Research today, March 22, 2017.

Dr Alok Pandey, Co-convener of the workshop welcomed the gathering and Dr D. Kar Chowdhuri, Chief Scientist, CSIR – Indian Institute of Toxicology Research and Chairman of the organizing committee apprised the guests and participants on the genesis of the workshop and the role the institute has played in advancing the science of nanotechnology. Delivering the inaugural address, Dr P. S. Chauhan, Former Head, Cell Biology Division, BARC, Mumbai emphasised the need for a focussed approach to evaluating nanomaterial safety, given their increasing use in various realms of human exposure. Professor Alok Dhawan, Director, CSIR – Indian Institute of Toxicology Research, while delivering his presidential remarks urged the participants to make the most of workshop by interacting with leading scientists of nanotechnology at the institute. The workshop schedule has been designed in a way have judicious mix of lectures and hands-on laboratory experimentation / demonstration covering topics of nanomaterial synthesis, characterization and safety using cutting edge technologies like electron microscopy, dynamic light scattering and various in-vitro and in-vivo assays.

Dr Satyakam Patnaik, Co-convener of the workshop, proposed the vote of thanks.
