POTSDAM — A Clarkson University team has received more than $300,000 from the National Science Foundation to study the health effects of nanoparticles, which are used to produce sunscreens, deodorants and other products

Professors Silvana Andreescu and Kenneth Wallace are examining how nanoparticle exposure affects cells’ defense systems, using zebrafish embryos to see what kind of effect the exposure would have on humans.

The research also will lead to the creation of a class on the environmental health and safety effects of nanotechnology for Clarkson students.
