Developing Regulatory Methods for Characterizing Nanomaterials in FDA-Regulated Products

Thursday, January 12, 2017
12:00 p.m. -1:00 p.m. EST
Presented by 
Dr. Thilak Mudalige
Research Chemist
FDA's Office of Regulatory Affairs

3 Things You’ll Learn from this FDA Chemist:

  1. An overview of nanomaterials and their size-dependent properties
  2. Everyday products you use that contain inorganic nanomaterials
  3. Dr. Mudalige’s methodology for characterizing the properties of nanomaterials in FDA-regulated products in an effort to understand their health impacts 

About the Presentation

FDA is seeing an increasing use of nanoparticles in consumer and medical products because of their unique, beneficial properties.  Silver nanoparticles, for example, are used in wound dressing for their antimicrobial properties and titanium dioxide nanoparticles in sunscreen to block ultraviolet radiation.  However, FDA needs to better understand the health effects of nanoparticles.  FDA’s Dr. Thilak Mudalige will describe the methodology he developed for characterizing inorganic and organic nanoparticles.
