    • Senior Research Scientist at NanoSafe
      Biography
        Hull earned both his Master's and doctorate degree from Virginia Tech in biology and civil and environmental engineering respectively. In 2003, Hull 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.

      Abstract

      DATE: September 28th, 2017
      TIME: 12:00PM PDT, 2:00PM CT 

      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?

      and

      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
