Description: 

In September 2008, the NSF and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) jointly announced the creation of two Centers for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology (CEIN), at UCLA and Duke University.

CEIN at UCLA has a breadth of activities comprised of several interdisciplinary research groups focused on nanoEHS research. CEIN at UCLA explores the impact of libraries of engineered nanomaterials on a range of cellular lifeforms, organisms and plants in terrestrial, fresh water and sea water environments. By being able to predict which nanomaterial physicochemical properties are potentially hazardous, the CEIN will be able to provide advice on the safe design of engineered nanomaterials from an environmental perspective.
