In their 2006 commentary, Maynard et al. (2006) highlighted five grand challenges facing nanotechnology: (1) develop instruments to assess exposure to engineered nanomaterials in air and water within the next 3–10 years; (2) develop and validate methods to evaluate the toxicity of engineered nanomaterials within the next 5–15 years; (3) develop models for predicting the potential impact of engineered nanomaterials on the environment and human health within the next 10 years; (4) develop robust systems for evaluating the health and environmental impact of engineered nanomaterials over their entire life within the next 5 years; and (5) develop strategic programs that enable relevant risk-focused research within the next 12 months.
