Several of our publications have attracted media attention. Here are a few of them:
Jan 23, 2020 – Disinfecting your hands with ‘magic’
The Harvard Gazette recently ran a piece exploring the benefits of an Engingeer Water Nanostructures (EWNS) platform for water-free hand sanitization. Click here to read the Gazette article.
Oct 24, 2018 – At Harvard Chan School, nano safety is no small concern
At the Center for Nanotechnology and Nanotoxicology, safety is a focus in the development and testing of products containing nanomaterials. The Gazette interviewed Dr. Philip Demokritou to find out more about why testing safety is such an important consideration when working with nanoparticles.

Center Director Philip Demokritou gave an interview with Stewart Bland from Elsevier’s Materials Today Podcast on nanomaterial toxicology.
Dr. Demokritou discussed his paper “Effects of intratracheally instilled laser printer-emitted engineered nanoparticles in a mouse model: a case study of toxicological implications from nanomaterials released during consumer use” which was published in the journal NanoImpact (see citation below).
