ABSTRACT

Nanotechnology has fostered the development of novel technology and products to benefit our life since early 1990. Scientists, stakeholders, and governors have been working closely in many countries to understand potential risks of this fast growing technology. There are indications that a range of engineered nanomaterials, including nanoparticles, agglomerates of nanoparticles, and particles of nanostructured materials, present potential risks to human health and the environment.  Dr. Tsai’s research addresses occupational and environmental health and safety issues in a sustainable manner from the beginning of technology development. It has investigated various occupational and environmental exposure issues, developed effective control strategies and studied health effects. She will present the current status of health and safety and the sustainable approach to develop nanotechnology and a healthy environment.
