About the Editor

Bengt Fadeel is professor of medical inflammation research at the Institute of Environmental Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden, and adjunct professor of environmental and occupational health, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, as well as visiting professor at the University of Rome "Tor Vergata" in Rome, Italy. He obtained his M.D. and Ph.D. from Karolinska Institutet. He received a six-year Senior Investigator Award in Inflammation Research from the Swedish Research Council and the national Environmental Medicine Prize in 2011 for research on the risks and opportunities of nanotechnology. Dr. Fadeel is a Fellow of the US Academy of Toxicological Sciences (ATS), director of the Nanosafety & Nanomedicine Laboratory, and head of the Division of Molecular Toxicology at the Institute of Environmental Medicine. He is the past coordinator of the FP7-NANOMMUNE consortium, which focused on the hazardous effects of engineered nanomaterials on the immune system, and is currently engaged in several other nanosafety projects, including FP7-MARINA, FP7-NANOREG, FP7-NANOSOLUTIONS, and FP7-SUN, as well as the European Flagship Project GRAPHENE, and the national MISTRA Environmental Nanosafety consortium. Dr. Fadeel served as co-chair of the 7th International Nanotoxicology Congress in Antalya, Turkey (2014).
