    • 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: December 12, 2018
      TIME:  10:00am PST

      Nanoparticle research provides an exciting path forward for numerous industries, but not without risk to health and safety. In this webinar, speakers David Wasescha and Matt Hull will address the basics of nano materials and discuss best practices for containment using various safety enclosures. Industrial hygiene test methods for nano hoods will also be covered. The webinar will conclude with an open Q and A session.

      Learning Objectives:

      • Understand the general risks of exposure to naturally occuring and engineered nanoparticulates.
      • Understand the types of containment available for laboratory scale processes.
      • Understand new methods to measure containment abilities of hoods used to capture nanoparticulates.
