Project Aim: to develop a safety classification for engineered nanomaterials (ENM) based on an understanding of their interactions with living organisms at molecular, cellular and organism levels.The “biological identity” of ENMs will be determined, and used to develop a computer program that can predict from the properties of ENM their ability to cause health or environmental hazards.
