Scientists at the INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials have found out that the protein haemoglobin influences the aggregation of individual gold nanoparticles to form clumps. James Bond can be located anywhere. He owes this fact to the nanosensors that find their way into his bloodstream by way of injection in the film "Spectre". In
The EuroScience Open Forum has announced its 2016 programme. With keynote speakers including Professor Dame Sally Davies, the UK's Chief Medical Officer, right through to Commissioner Moedas from the European Commission; and sessions on science and technology and their impact on our societies, space exploration and pushing the frontiers of our scientific knowledge to the
The EU NanoSafety Cluster is a DG RTD NMP initiative comprised of nine on-going projects including NANOSOLUTIONS that aims to maximise synergies between the existing FP6 and FP7 projects addressing all aspects of nanosafety. The Project nanOxiMet has worked closely with the cluster and are holding their final workshop “Oxidative potential as a metric for nanomaterial grouping”

Andreas Falk is on the international advisory board for NANOSOLUTIONS. Here he spoke to William Davis at the Systems Biology Conference in Stockholm about the importance of disseminating the findings of nanosafety projects beyond the world of research. Listen to the full interview in the media player below “The use of
NANOSOLUTIONS is proud to congratulate Professor Anna A. Shvedova founder and past president of Dermal Toxicology Specialty Section/SOT and a key member of WP6 on the news that she has been named a Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher. Prof Shvedova received several SOT awards for mentoring women in toxicology field and communication for brining awareness of toxicology to public.
Sten Linnarsson of the Karolinska Institutet kicked off the first session of the second day with a talk on the molecular anatomy of the mouse brain. The brain is arguably the most complex organ in all biology. To understand how it works, you must first understand how it is built; what are the components, how
2016 is looking to be an important year for Nanosafety with a great many exciting conferences on the horizon. One of which is being organised by Richard Handy of Plymouth University and NANOSOLUTIONS Workpackage 7 (WP7). This event is the 11TH International Conference on the Environmental Effects of Nanoparticles and Nanomaterials (ICEENN 2016) which will take place at the Colorado
The latest NANOSOLUTIONS newsletter is now available. In this newsletter we look back at the Systems Biology in Nanosafety Research conference that took place in November and at the newly released film 'Safer by Design' We have an update from WP3 on Criteria for Selection of ENM, and WP6 on the Collection of in vitro samples.
Oliver Kohlbacher of the University of Tübingen spoke about a new bioinformatics workflow for multi-omics analyses in systems toxicology. Multi-omics techniques pose additional challenges in data analysis. Analysing individual omics layers already requires significant pre-processing and statistical analysis in a coherent (and ideally automated) fashion. Multi-omics experiments are — by necessity — more complex
