Project description

This research project quantitatively characterises the interaction of cyclic depsipeptides (CDP) with human skin using ex-vivo in-vitro FDC experiments. This knwoledge is required for the global mycotoxin risk assessment due to skin-contact of contaminated cosmeceuticals, food, feed, indoor surfaces and airborne particles, but also for the development of topically applied new CDP-drugs, treating dermatological or systemic diseases after transdermal penetration.
