Nano(geno)toxicology is a new discipline that has recently evolved with the development of the nanotechnology industry. This subject encompasses general toxicology associated with nanomaterials and also specifically focuses on the sub-discipline of genotoxicology. This course will therefore focus on, (I) the parameters of engineered nanomaterials that govern their interaction and influence on biological systems; (II) techniques that are central elements in assessing the safety evaluation of nanomaterials; (III) portals of entry into the body, their potential fate and the mechanisms that underlie cellular damage by nanomaterials.
