Welcome to NANOSOLUTIONS
The overarching aim of the NANOSOLUTIONS consortium is to provide a means 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 objective is to determine the “biological identity” of ENM, and subsequently develop a computer program that can predict from the properties of ENM their ability to cause health or environmental hazards. New innovative methods are needed for the ENM risk assessment of ENM safety, i.e. ENM SAFETY CLASSIFIER.
This will allow for the crucial transition from descriptive toxicology to predictive toxicology.
