PATROLS' coordinator Prof. Shareen Doak will be taking part in the panel on 'Market access of Nanomaterials: Regulations, Standards, Characterisation' on 5th May at the EuroNanoForum conference.
Shareen Doak is Professor of Genotoxicology and Cancer in Swansea University Medical School's In Vitro Toxicology Group. Shareen is a UK and EUROTOX Registered Toxicologist, Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology (FRSB) and Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales (FLSW). Her research interests focus on genotoxic profiles of engineered nanomaterials, mechanisms underlying their DNA damaging potential and subsequent human health consequences. Her interests extend to development of advanced 3D culture models and mechanism-based bioassays for safety assessment, to reduce the need for animal testing. Shareen sits on the UK Government Committee on Mutagenicity (COM) and is Mutagenesis Editor-in-Chief.
The EuroNanoForum 2021 conference will address the role of nano-enabled technologies and industries in the transformation towards EU prosperity. The event will bring forward the role of R&I, as well as the opportunities offered by EU's next Framework Programme; Horizon Europe.
