The committee was funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to create a conceptual framework for environmental, health, and safety-related research; develop a research plan with short- and long-term research priorities; estimate resources necessary to implement this research plan; and subsequently evaluate research progress over a three year period. Dr. Coe-Sullivan is one of 20 U.S. EH&S experts on the committee, and the only representative from a nanomaterials business.
