  Extensive international investment in nanotechnology has lead to the development and use of an ever expanding array of novel and exciting nanomaterials (one dimension less than 100nm). These nanomaterials are used in diverse applications including medicine, food, cosmetics and clothing, with over 800 products already commercially available. For nanotechnology to be sustainable and contribute to economic growth it has been recognised that there is an urgent need for nanotoxicologists to work with industry and improve understanding of how nanomaterials interact with biological systems,
including their potential toxicity with the aim of developing safe products for industry and the consumer
