It goes without saying that before implementing the various applications of nanoparticles, it is necessary to investigate their potential toxicological impacts and this is what we intend to do in this project where several metal nanoparticles with novel characteristics are synthetized. This task, however, is not so straightforward as it may appear. In fact, our current knowledge of the toxicology of nanomaterials is still poor and the existing evidences on the factors that affect uptake, translocation to other tissues, intracellular trafficking and nanotoxicity of metal-based NPs reveals more uncertainties than certainties. What it is taken for granted it is not always so scientifically sound. This workshop is to take stock of the situation by analyzing the status of the art of nanotoxicological research.
