RIFM’s Senior Associate Scientist for Dermatotoxicology Participates at 11th Meeting of Immunotoxicology & Chemical Allergy

Dr. Schember presented work in collaboration with Procter & Gamble to evaluate chemical structures for potential use in an animal-alternative skin assay.

The Research Institute for Fragrance Materials’ Senior Associate Scientist for Dermatotoxicology, Isabella Schember, PhD, participated at the 11th meeting of Immunotoxicology & Chemical Allergy (ITCASS) and the 30th meeting of European Research Group on Experimental Contact Dermatitis (ERGECD) in Liverpool, UK, June 12-14, 2024.

Dr. Schember presented work in collaboration with Procter & Gamble to evaluate chemical structures for their potential use in the PPRA, an animal-alternative skin assay, on June 13.

“This is a great opportunity to highlight some of RIFM’s work in New Approach Methodologies (NAMs) for skin sensitization,” said Dr. Isabella Schember. “My presentation exemplifies how to incorporate the PPRA in the 2 out of 3 Defined Approach. This is based on a Weight of Evidence (WoE) approach for safety assessment of fragrance ingredients to improve the in vitro prediction of skin sensitization.”
