Centre for Interdisciplinary NanoResearch (CiNR)

The Centre for Interdisciplinary NanoResearch at HSL (CiNR) was established in 2007. This Centre brings together expertise across the whole laboratory and is uniquely placed to address the potential health and safety risks from nanoparticles.

HSL has been involved in nanoresearch for several years and has been at the cutting edge of work investigating the associated health and safety issues

HSL is undertaking a range of studies to help understand health and safety issues encompassing everything from the toxicity of nanoparticles to their potential explosion risk. We are currently developing services to meet the needs of producers and users of nanoparticles and nanomaterials.

Please use the links above to learn more about the Centre and the research work we undertake.

Further Information

If you wish to discuss a research project or commission some work please contact us.  Enquiries and requests for advice regarding health and safety concerns about nanomaterials and nanotechnology, however, should be directed, in the first instance, to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) Helpdesk.
