Abstract

Report analyzes U.S. Federal Government's efforts to research the human health and environmental consequences of nanotechnology. It describes an urgent need to chart a more aggressive course in these research areas. Report gives fourteen policy recommendations based on the following components, 1) identifying the "right" research that can inform priority risk management systems, 2) addresses the need for research management and offers recommendations for the completions of timely and policy-relevant research, and 3) how research results can be used to support sound risk management decisions.
