    • Senior Research Scientist at NanoSafe
        Matt has more than a decade of experience exploring the applications and implications of nano-enabled technologies. Prior to founding NanoSafe, Matt held an appointment on the Nanotechnology Technical Advisory Group (nTAG) to PCAST and served as Senior Research Scientist at Luna Innovations Incorporated. In 2003, Matt developed the concept for the NanoSafe™ framework, which provided an integrated risk management strategy for nanotechnology facilities. The NanoSafe framework eventually led to spin-off programs such as nanotechnology waste recovery and recycling processes, life-cycle ecotoxicological studies of nanomanufacturing, and nanomechanical sensors for chemical and biological agent detection. Matt earned his PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering and his MS in Biology from Virginia Tech.

      Nanoparticle research provides an exciting path forward for numerous industries, but not without risk to health and safety. In this webinar, we will address the basics of nanoparticles and best practices for containment using ventilated safety enclosures. We will also take a look at a method for safely testing nanotechnology hoods, and address common questions such as:

      Are there unknown nanoparticle risks in my research environment?


      Will my current hoods appropriately contain nanoparticulates?

      Learning Objectives:

      • Understand the containment challenges associated with nanoparticles
      • Learn how to select containment enclosures that are appropriate for nanoparticles
      • Learn about specialized industrial hygiene testing methods for the detection of nanoparticles
