The NanoSafe Australia network is a group of Australian toxicologists and risk assessors, who have formed a research network to address the issues concerning the occupational and environmental health and safety of nanomaterials.

Our Mission

  • To support government, industry and non-government organisations (NGOs) in their efforts to understand the health and safety issues surrounding nanotechnology products and their manufacturing processes.
  • To provide quality data for the appropriate risk assessments of nanomaterials.
