Holistic integrated models will better predict potential undesired effects of nanomaterials
Nanomaterials are revolutionising fields from composites and coatings to energy, biomedicine and optoelectronics. The unique and exotic properties exhibited by many materials at the nanoscale that are not exhibited by the same materials in bulk form have paved the way for unprecedented material and device functions. However, these very small sizes increase the materials' potential to access, settle in and affect living organisms during a product’s life cycle. The EU-funded NanoInformaTIX project is developing a multiscale modelling framework integrating numerous databases and models in one to optimise the assessment of exposure and toxicity associated with engineered nanomaterials.
