Nanosafe Founder Co-Edits Book on Nanotechnology Risk Management

Nanotechnology Environmental Health and Safety: Risks, Regulation and Management, co-edited by Matthew Hull and Diana Bowman, is on's Hot New Releases in Nanotechnology.  I wrote more about that story on Handshake 2.0.

Hull founded NanoSafe, headquartered in the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center and a VT KnowledgeWorks member company, in Blacksburg, Virginia.

I asked Matthew Hull, "Nanotechnology Environmental Health and Safety looks like a textbook. Am I correct in assuming it's written for students in courses?"  He kindly replied:

Nanotechnology Environmental Health and Safety by Matthew Hull and Diana Bowman Absolutely.  The book would fit nicely with a graduate level or undergraduate level technical or business course focused on balancing the risks of technologies with their commercial development and ultimate societal acceptance.  There's a shortage of information resources on nanotech EHS, particularly resources that really lay out the issues like our book does.  A newcomer to nanotechnology could pick up this book and develop a strong understanding of the major challenges, who the key players are, and what management strategies are being adopted globally.
