Microscopic, manmade nanoparticles have found their way into almost every part of our daily lives from clothing, to skin care, our cell phones, and even the soil. But how safe are we from ill effects from extensive exposure? And what happens when engineered nanomaterials find their way into the environment? In this program, experts explore emerging areas of research looking to engineer a healthier, safer, and more efficient future.
This program is part of the “Big, the Small, and the Complex,” series sponsored by The Kavli Foundation and The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters. The Kavli Prize recognizes scientists for their seminal advances in astrophysics, nanoscience, and neuroscience.
