Prof. Chunying Chen is a principal investigator at National Center for Nanoscience and Technology of China. Her research interests include the potential toxicity of nanoparticles, therapies for malignant tumors using theranostic nanomedicine systems and vaccine nanoadjuvants using nanomaterials.
Bengt Fadeel is a Full Professor of Medical Inflammation Research at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm. His laboratory is currently focused on hazard assessment of engineered nanomaterials including 2D materials and on basic mechanisms of inflammation and cell death.
Dr Helinor Johnston is an associate professor of toxicology at Heriot Watt University and specialises in the assessment of nanomaterial hazard to human health and the environment. Her current research focuses on investigating the suitability ofemploying alternative, non-rodentmodels to screen nanomaterial safety (e.g. in vitro models and zebrafish larvae) at different target sites including the lung, liver, intestine, skin and immune system.
Martina G. Vijver is professor of Ecotoxicology at Leiden University since 2017. Her focus is on obtaining realistic predictions and measurements of how existing and emerging chemicals & nanomaterials potentially affect our natural environment and the organisms living therein. She is specially interested in field realistic testing, and works on pesticides, metals, microplastics and nanomaterials.
