The Teratology Society Annual Meeting

June 24, 2017 - June 28, 2017

$750

Birth defects and reproductive and developmentally-mediated disorders constitute a major public health concern in the world today. Human development can be affected not only by drugs and chemicals but also by diet, genetics, maternal health, and socioeconomic factors. The Teratology Society strives to understand and protect against potential hazards to developing embryos, fetuses, children, and adults, by bringing together scientific knowledge from diverse fields such as cell and molecular biology, developmental biology and toxicology, reproduction and endocrinology, nutritional biochemistry, genetics, and epidemiology, as well as the clinical disciplines of prenatal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics, neonatology, medical genetics, and teratogen risk counseling.

The Annual Meeting provides a unique forum for this diverse group of scientists and clinicians to present and discuss the latest scientific and clinical information on causes and prevention of abnormal development and reproduction, and for trainees to discuss topics of mutual interest with seasoned investigators.

Why you should attend

The Annual Meeting provides the opportunity to promote our shared vision and scientific identity as researchers focused on the causes, manifestations, intervention, and prevention of birth defects and disorders of developmental origin.

  • The meeting promotes and expresses our scientific diversity as a society of fellow clinicians, scientists, and science policy regulators from academic, industrial, and government sectors.
  • Attendees can indulge in discussions from philosophical to practical with established experts in the field, new researchers, and students.
  • The Annual Meeting provides a place and time to catch up with colleagues, make new friends, and network.
  • Scientific sessions highlight the latest scientific research in birth defects, diseases of developmental origin and cutting edge technologies.

Why you should exhibit

The Annual Meeting brings together 400+ scientists, administrators, and managers from industry, academia, government and regulatory agencies to discuss the most up-to-date developments in congenital (birth) defects including their nature, cause, mechanisms, and prevention. Attendees represent the disciplines of pediatrics, anatomy, epidemiology, pharmacology and industrial toxicology, developmental biology, obstetrics, pathology, and genetics.
