EU Funds Study Of Nanoparticles

Department: Business
Keywords: Nanotechnology, nanoparticles

The European Union has awarded the University of Ulster’s Biomedical Sciences Institute, in Coleraine, Ireland, a grant of nearly $500,000 over three years to investigate the link between nanoparticles and disease. The research is part of NeuroNano, an EU-funded effort to investigate whether engineered nanoparticles are a neurotoxic risk. The Ulster experts will look specifically at nanoparticles of titanium dioxide and cerium oxide, found in some sunscreens and diesel fuels, and their connection to Alz­heimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
