Biotransformation of nanomaterials while transferring in food chain


Read out latest Nanopinion guest column from Dr. Fazel A. Monikh, who talks about the importance of understanding the behaviour of nanomaterials in organisms’ tissues and bodies. Because of this, he developed a sensitive workflow to trace and characterize nanomaterials in organisms.

“Adopting the safe by design strategy could be a potential solution to balance between the benefits and the possible ecological effects of nanomaterials. The aim of my research is to support designing safe nanomaterials by understanding the possible effects of these materials in the environment and in organisms.”
