Web Training – bookable at any time

Course fee: 900 EUR + VAT

Please note: This course is currently being updated and will be available again from 1 July 2024. Therefore, this course cannot currently be booked.


The target of the course is to contribute to the qualification of the safety assessor
(here: for the part of “metabolism, kinetics and structure-activity relationships”).

Contents of the course:

  • Principles and basic concepts for the impact of the organism on foreign substances and foreign substances on the organism.
  • Fundamentals of biotransformation and biokinetics, the structure and function of metabolic organs
  • Structural elements relevant to biological effects of substances used in cosmetic products
  • In vitro and in vivo models for the study of metabolic reactions and their significance for biological effects
  • Exercise examples
