Center for Veterinary Medicine Nanotechnology Programs

Pharmaceuticals and devices that contain nanomaterials, when considered for use in food-producing animals, may raise questions related to human food safety. The goal of the Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) research is to better understand the biodistribution of various nanomaterials in food animal edible tissue, including milk and eggs. This information will help the Center to develop study protocol recommendations and to address other human food safety related issues, and provide the Center with food safety data for animal drug products that contain nanomaterials or otherwise use nanotechnology.
