CTPA Practical Teaching on NGRA and NAMs: Meet the Experts!

The CTPA Practical Teaching on Risk Assessment of Cosmetics Using New Approach Methodologies (NAMs) and Next Generation Risk Assessment (NGRA) is coming soon!  For all information about the programme, our experts and how to register, please check the event page.

Dr Olivia Osborne will be one of the speakers at this event, as well as expert on NGRA and NAMs, giving an overview of the activities currently ongoing at the UK Government to promote knowledge and regulatory acceptance of these approaches.

Dr Olivia Osborne is a multidisciplinary (eco) toxicological chemical risk assessment scientist in the fields of human health and the environment.  She is currently working at the Food Standards Agency in the Science Evidence and Research Division working on chemical risk assessment and leading on new approach methodologies (NAMs) to predict risk more accurately, rapidly, and efficiently. This includes predictive toxicology methods using artificial intelligence computer modelling.

She is a Member of Institute of Food Science and Technology (MIFST), UK and European Registered Toxicologist (UKRT ERT); member of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Working Party for Nanomaterials; committee member of the British Standard Institute (BSI); part of European Partnership for the Assessment of Risks from Chemicals (PARC) UK Steering Group; in the Accelerating the Pace of Chemical Risk Assessment (APCRA) initiative and Chair of the Cross Whitehall Strategic Steering Group on New Approaches to Chemical Risk Assessment in the Regulatory Space.

Olivia graduated in Biological Sciences with Honours and received a PhD from the University of Exeter in (eco) toxicology, nanotechnology and developmental biology. Following thereafter, she was a postdoctoral research scholar at the multidisciplinary California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) in the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), USA where she established high throughput screening platforms for nanoparticles and compounds assessment using novel strategies.

Join Olivia and the other experts at the CTPA Practical Teaching on Risk Assessment of Cosmetics Using NAMs and NGRA on 21 June in London!
