- ECHA Nanomaterials Expert Group (NMEG)
- 15 July 2021
Read out latest Nanopinion guest column from Frank Le Curieux, Scientific Area Leader for Genotoxicity at the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). Our author presents the ECHA Nanomaterials Expert Group (NMEG) by writing about its creation and history, its organisation, its main tasks and its future after 2021.
Nanomaterials and health
Are substances in nanoforms more dangerous than they are in their normal size? Some are and some are not. Just like any other chemical substance, nanomaterials have to be assessed separately.
Nanomaterials are not only used in consumer products, but also in new and innovative medical treatments. Research has shown that nanoparticles can be used to damage and even destroy cancer cells from within.
