Sustainable Nano-Enabled Approaches in Agriculture and Food:
Enhancing efficiencies across the “farm to the fork” while reducing Environmental Health and Safety implications.
- Development of nanotechnology-based enabling technologies for targeted delivery of agrichemicals
Development of sustainable, nano-enabled antimicrobial interventions across the farm-to-fork continuum for minimizing foodborne diseases and wastes
Development of Nano-nutraceuticals
Assessment of toxicological implications from ingested nanomaterials
Development of human risk perception / mental model for consumer use
Life Cycle Environmental and Health Risk Assessment of Nano-Enabled Products (NEPs):
- Understanding potential ENM releases and human and environmental exposures across life cycle of families of NEPs that are currently commercially available, especially in Singapore.
Development of integrated methodologies to assess life cycle specific, EHS implications of families of NEPs;
Development of sustainable NEPs through considerations of safe-by-design principles and human risk perception/mental model for consumer use.
