Symposium Series : Inhaled Particles XI (IPXI)

Nanopaprika members can still take advantage of Early Bird event discount rates offered by the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) if registration is booked before 1 July 2013.   

IPXI promises to be a gathering of paramount importance in re integrative nanotox approaches, with featured keynote speakers being Dr Michael Attfield (Institute of Occupational Medicine (IOM) and National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)); Dr Derk Brouwer (Dutch Organization for Applied Scientific Research TNO and OECD Working Party on Nano Materials SG8 and EU-US Community of Research in the area of (nano)Risk Assessment); Dr Vince Castranova (Nanotoxicology Program at National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)); and Charles D. Litton (Office of Mine Safety and Health Research (OMSHR) at National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)).

" The meeting is multi-disciplinary in its approach to addressing topics within exposure (e.g. controls, instrumentation / measurement), hazard (e.g. deposition/ clearance of inhaled particles, fate / mechanisms of disease) and risk assessment (e.g. health impacts and links with policy) of particles brought together to under the theme of human occupational health. "


" Th[is] meeting brings together leading researchers on the adverse effects of particles on the lungs and extrapulmonary target tissues to showcase cutting edge research and debate solutions to the challenges faced within particle research and risk assessment. " 

Concerned and aware TINCers are strongly urged to engage and to also consider cross-disciplinary educational pursuits in specialist occupational hygiene studies via the BOHS Diploma of Professional Competence in Occupational Hygiene

Previously published Inhaled Particles Conference series proceedings (from 1960 onward) are currently available online

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
