COSMOS Symposium on “Computational Tools for Safety Assessment Focussing on Cosmetics Ingredients”

News >>

This one day workshop event will present and demonstrate the findings of the EU COSMOS Project to support the prediction of repeat dose toxicity within the context of the SEURAT-1 initiative.

Specific highlights include:

* Role of 21st Century Toxicology: Development of non-test methods to meet the demands of the Cosmetics legislation

* COSMOS DB: A database solution to investigate toxicological data to support knowledge discovery and safety evaluation

* Threshold of Toxicological Concern (TTC):  The COSMOS TTC dataset enriched in cosmetics-related ingredients, available within COSMOS DB

* Biokinetics Modelling: Freely available PBK models (for oral and dermal exposure), IVIVE, cell-based virtual assays

* Toxicity Modelling: Structural alerts and molecular modelling profilers to support toxicity prediction

* Computational Workflows: Freely available KNIME workflows, KNIME WebPortal, supporting documentation, user guidance and on-line tutorials

* Read-Across: Presentation of a strategy and templates to define uncertainty and assist in data gap filling

* Hands-On Demonstrations: Use the computational tools under expert guidance

* Interactive feedback opportunities: Ask the developers, discuss applications
