In this work we report results from our EU research project NANOTRANSPORT. This project addressed the occupational health risks associated with aerosols released during manufacture of nanoparticles. The main objective of this project was to investigate physical changes which nanoparticles undergo after being released into workplace environment under realistic exposure scenarios. Results of the project contributed to a better understanding of the characteristics of nanoparticles when they reach a human receptor.
