From 1988 to 2014, Dr. Lerson Tanasugarn has completed over 30 major projects as listed below:
ระหว่าง พ.ศ. 2531 ถึง พ.ศ. 2557 ดร. เลอสรร ธนสุกาญจน์ ได้ดำเนินโครงการสำคัญๆ ให้ลุล่วงไปด้วยดีเป็นจำนวนกว่า 30 โครงการ ดังได้ให้รายละเอียดไว้ข้างล่าง ดังนี้:

  • 2011 - Strengthening the Technology Management Offices in Universities and Government Laboratories

    Project Director: Lerson Tanasugarn, Ph.D.
    Researchers: Lerson Tanasugarn, Ph.D.
    Budget: US$22,500.00
    Funding Agency: Thailand’s National Science Technology and Innovation Policy Office (STI)
    Executing Agency: N.A.
    Output: Report
    Synopsis: The strength of a technology management office was defined. General schemes at strengthening such an office was reviewed. Case studies were drawn from Thailand, the United States, the Republic of Korea, and Taiwan. Recommendations were then made. Although the project was completed some time ago, the final report is still undergoing the conversion to a book format to be published soon.
  • 2011 - Nanosafety Guideline for Industries

    Project Director: Lerson Tanasugarn, Ph.D.
    Researchers: Lerson Tanasugarn, Ph.D.
    Advisors: Chalermchai Chaikittiporn, Dr.Ph. and Sirasak Teparkam, Ph.D.
    Budget: US$30,000.00
    Funding Agency: Department of Industry Works, Ministry of Industry
    Executing Agency: Chulalongkorn University
    Output: 250-page Guideline (ISBN 978-616-551-563-4)
    Synopsis: The Guideline can be used in the planning office of an industrial firm as well as on the factory floor. In order to make the guideline applicable to all industries, these industries are broken down to series of activity to be performed. By considering the activities involved as well as the physical properties of the manufactured nanomaterials in question, one can find an appropriate set of safety recommendations to follow.
  • 2011 - Establishing the Nanosafety Information Center of Thailand (NICT)

    Project Director:Lerson Tanasugarn, Ph.D.
    Researchers:Lerson Tanasugarn, Ph.D., Nattita Chuankrirkul, Ph.D., and Supin Sangsuk, Ph.D.
    Budget:US$80,645.00 (First year)
    Funding Agency:NANOTEC
    Executing Agency:Chulalongkorn University
    Output:Report and Web Site
    Synopsis:In 2007, NANOTEC commissioned Dr. Lerson Tanasugarn to write the first review of the global status and best practice in the field of nanosafety. At that time the project was nicknamed “Phase 1” but NANOTEC did not fund the “Phase 2” project that was supposed to be a detailed study on specific topics within the subject of nanosafety. Instead, it was decided that what Thailand urgently needed was a national strategy for dealing with the safety of manufactured nanomaterials and the nanosafety budget was therefore shifted to fund the formulation of this national strategy. The Nanosafety Subcommittee that was chaired by Dr. Suwit Wibulpolprasert appointed Dr. Lerson Tanasugarn as Chairman of the Task Force to draft the national strategy and then helped expedite the draft strategy for adoption by the existing mechanism of the Health Assembly. In 2011, the Nanosafety and Nanoethics National Strategy was finally adopted by the Cabinet. NANOTEC then commissioned Dr. Lerson Tanasugarn to establish the Nanosafety Information Center of Thailand (NICT) to implement the first component of the nanosafety and nanoethics national strategy, which is to make the scientific and safety information of manufactured nanomaterials available and accessible to the public. As a result of the project, a web site was set up at to disseminate such information and knowledge. NANOTEC was supposed to support the project for 3 years but although NANOTEC Administrative Board approved the second year budget of US$32,000, the funding never really took place. The web site mentioned earlier was opened until the end of 2014 and is now closed due to lack of maintenance budget. What probably happened was another shift of budget towards other activities aimed at implementing other components of the national strategy.
