It is essential that any information on an ingredient is generated with the ultimate safety risk assessment decision in mind, for instance “can we safely use 2% of a novel ingredient in a skin cream?” Exposure-led approaches to Next Generation Risk Assessment (NGRA) of the potential effects of new chemicals on both human health and the environment rely on integration of novel information on consumer and environmental exposure with new types of information on the biological pathways where chemicals can interact. Our safety science research can be grouped into four main topics:
