By Jason Frye for Flow Sciences, Inc.

We sat down to discuss nanotechnology, nanomaterials and safety issues within this upstart industry with Donna Heidel, CIH, Prevention Through Design Coordinator for the CDC/NIOSH (Centers for Disease Control/National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) Education and Information Division; and Charles Geraci, Jr., PhD., CIH, the Coordinator of the CDC’s Nanotechnology Research Center. What Heidel and Geraci had to say revealed a set of issues that go deeper than simple safe handling best practices.
