Improving nanotoxicological studies with focus on in vitro studies – Progress by the FNN project

Nanotechnology is one of the fastest growing scientific fields of both research and industry.1,2 Its activity can be measured in terms of increase in research funding2,3, expected economic impact2,4 and emerging jobs4. The attractiveness of nanomaterials is mostly due to the enhancement of key properties of traditional materials by reducing their size to the nano-scale (about 1 – 100 nanometres) which results in new surface-related phenomena that can be exploited in many ways.
