CEINT Mesocosms in the Duke Forest, an update

Situated in the forest away from campus, it can be easy to forget the work and research continually ongoing at the CEINT Mesocosm Facility. With experiments out in the Duke Forest Teaching and Research Laboratory lasting a year or longer, monitoring, sampling and data analysis is a continual... Read More

Center for the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology

The Center for the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology (CEINT) is exploring the relationship between a vast array of nanomaterials— from natural, to manufactured, to those produced incidentally by human activities— and their potential environmental exposure, biological effects, and ecological impacts. Headquartered at Duke University, CEINT is a collaborative effort bringing together researchers from Duke, Carnegie Mellon University, Howard University, Virginia Tech, University of Kentucky, Stanford University, and Baylor. CEINT academic collaborations include on-going activities coordinated with faculty at Clemson, North Carolina State, and North Carolina Central universities, with researchers at NIST and EPA government labs, and with key international partners.

Created in 2008 with funding from the National Science Foundation and the US Environmental Protection Agency, CEINT performs fundamental research on the behavior of nano-scale materials in laboratory and complex ecosystems. Research includes all aspects of nanomaterial transport, fate and exposure, as well as ecotoxicological and ecosystem impacts. Additionally, CEINT is developing risk assessment tools to provide guidance in assessing existing and future concerns surrounding the environmental implications of nanomaterials.
