12/21/2009 - WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- Dr. Saber Hussain, senior toxicologist in Air Force Research Laboratory's 711th Human Performance Wing, Human Effectiveness Directorate, Biosciences and Performance Division, Biological Interaction Group was elected a Fellow of the Academy of Toxicological Sciences based on his outstanding contributions to the toxicological sciences of nanomaterials. Dr. Hussain's early initiatives and continuing achievements in toxicology have earned him the recognition of his peers, as well as initiated international opportunities for collaboration in new bionanotechnology areas. This high-visibility exposure has furthered AFRL's various educational partnerships with the Department of Defense, academia, and industry in advancing nanobiotechnology initiatives that apply Air Force expertise to basic science.

Dr. Hussain has accomplished a multitude of nanotechnology research projects geared towards investigating the biological interactions of engineered nanomaterials, including potential toxicities arising from the physicochemical properties uniquely associated with nanoscale structures. This research will facilitate acquisition of the fundamental knowledge needed to better understand nano-bio interaction mechanisms, provide in-depth analyses of corresponding effects on biological systems, and enable the theoretical development of predictive bioresponse models. Such knowledge will not only help to improve nanomaterial safety strategies for protecting both human and environmental health, but also help to apply advanced nanobiotechnologies to the development of future weapon systems.

Dr. Hussain's Fellow selection recognizes his professional experience, demonstrated expertise, and sound scientific judgment. This significant milestone acknowledges his outstanding accomplishments and contributions in the field of toxicology. The honor of Fellow is reserved for those individuals who have performed or overseen important scientific work that has enhanced the field of human-related technology for systems crucial to ongoing aerospace superiority.
