The “Health and Environment” group takes care of nanosafety research as an essential requirement that cannot be dissociated from the development of new nanotechnologies.
The small size and unique physico-chemical properties of graphene pose potential risks to the health of humans and the environment. The identification and resolution of any possible safety and toxicity issues is crucial not only for their integration into ICT, composites, etc., but also in view of their possible biomedical applications, such as direct nano-interfacing devices with cells and tissues.
