Center for the Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology (CEIN)

Grants and Contracts Details


The subcontract to UK (Paul Bertsch lab) brings critical expertise to CEINT in bridging nanogeochemistry with work on trophic transfer and bioavailabilty. In the Center for the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology (CEINT) the University of Kentucky will be responsible for studying and reporting on nanogeochemistry, nanomaterial uptake, and trophic transfer of nanomaterials. In addition, Dr. Paul Bertsch will be performing research within the CEINT project: Propoerties and impacts of nanoparticles in ecosystems. He will participate in CEINT workshops and conferences. Dr. Bertsch, as PI, will collaborate with CEINT leadership in the reporting requirements for NSF management. He will also work with CEINT to pursue other funding opportunities.
