New DaNa article on pollinating insects
Pollen of contaminated plants or water droplets can be carriers for nanomaterials. Bees and bumblebees are potentially exposed to those nanoparticles, caused e.g. by the increased usage of nanofertilizer and nanopesticides. Do nanomaterials pose a threat to pollinators? Might they be one of the reasons of the insect species extinction? What studies have been published to this topic?   The recently published DaNa-article "Nanomaterials and pollinating insects?” will enlighten this topic and can be found in our Cross-Cutting section.          
caLIBRAte Closing Conference 2019
From 07-10 October 2019, the caLIBRAte Closing Conference will be taking place as a part of the NanoSafety Cluster Week in Copenhagen, Denmark. The closing conference is relevant for researchers, industry, policy makers and regulators who are interested in nanosafety, risk governance as well as nanomaterial and product development. During the 5-day-event, participants will learn about the results from the project calibrate and take part in both the training event on the NanoRisk governance portal as well as the NanoSafety Cluster conference “Towards in silico nanosafety assessment –...

IPTC 2019
From 11-13th September 2019, the 12th International Particle Toxicology Conference will be taking place in Salzburg, Austria. The IPTC series of conferences brings together experts on particle toxicology worldwide considering all types of particles. It covers basic research issues, but has a strong focus on applications of particle toxicology, which are in work place safety, environmental safety, consumer safety, medical and diagnostic developments and other fields.A focus of the Salzburg meeting will be the challenges to translate knowledge derived from particle safety research into...

Surprisingly simple method could expand human visual sense Extended senses: An injection with nanoparticles could expand our vision in the future - and make infrared radiation visible to us. Researchers have now successfully tested how this works with mice. The nanoparticles injected into the eye attach themselves to the photoreceptors of the retina and convert incident infrared radiation into green light signals. These are then processed normally by the eye. According to the researchers, this method could also give us humans a real infrared vision. Even if our eye can still...
