Environmental, health, and safety (EHS) research continues to push the boundaries in characterizing and quantifying human and environmental exposures to engineered nanomaterials from manufactured products. The 2nd Quantifying Exposure to Engineered Nanomaterials from Manufactured Products (QEEN II) Workshop highlighted new research on the tools and methods available to characterize and quantify effective population exposures, as well as the presence and release potential of nanomaterials. This two-day technical workshop built on key themes that emerged from the first QEEN workshop in 2015. The QEEN II program addressed the progress in integrating exposure, hazard, and risk to reduce uncertainties in nanomaterial EHS assessments. The workshop goals also included the identification of priorities and options for cross-disciplinary research collaborations. The intended audience included academics, Federal representatives, and manufacturers and distributors of nanotechnology-enabled products, as well as communities seeking to understand exposure science related to engineered nanomaterials.
