10.00 – 12.00 hrs  |  Cosmetic Risk Assessment in 2022

Symposium description
Ethical concerns, changing regulations and increased mechanistic understanding have driven the development and application of non-animal – next generation risk assessment approaches. This session will review these approaches to skin sensitisation risk assessment and identify how toxicologists and the clinical community can work together to ensure that risk assessments for skin sensitisation are sufficiently protective for consumers. The objectives of this workshop are to create more awareness on risk assessment of skin sensitisers, define the work that needs to be done and establish new collaborations.
