To preempt the same kind of public backlash that genetically modified crops have received, governments and industry are starting to look at nanomaterial toxicity more closely, says Kristen Kulinowski, executive director of Rice University's Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology in Houston.
The National Science Foundation established a Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology (CBEN) at Rice University; its mission is to evaluate the health and environmental effects of new nanomaterials.
With this congressional seal of approval, it gives nanotechnology a high profile in the government," says Kristen Kulinowski, executive director of the Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology at Rice University in Houston.
From that moment on, says Colvin, researchers planning to work in Rice's new Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology began thinking about what environmental and health consequences such new, tiny materials might pose.
