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

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


Time and Date: 9.00am – 5pm on Wednesday 9 September 2015
