What We Do Bringing Together Researchers across Diverse Fields to Solve Big Challenges The Teratology Society s Annual Meeting is the premier gathering for scientists clinicians administrators and managers from industry academia and government to discuss the most up to date developments in birth defects research including the nature causes mechanisms and prevention of birth defects The Annual Meeting provides an opportunity for scientists at all stages of their careers to present their work discuss results and establish collaborative scientific interactions and network within a setting that encourages the open exchange of ideas and experimental findings Unique in its multidisciplinary nature the Teratology Society Annual Meeting brings together researchers across diverse fields to solve big challenges Growing the Next Generation of Teratologists Given the common costly and serious nature of birth defects and developmentally mediated disorders it is imperative that we grow and support the next generation of researchers in this diverse field Every year approximately 50 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows participate in the Annual Meeting The program includes several components aimed at supporting these attendees including Travel Awards the Wilson Student Postdoctoral Fellow Platform Session a breakfast with Teratology mentors a career workshop and an evening networking mixer As a postdoc and early career scientist membership has given me a head start in my career Nisha S Sipes PhD National Institutes of Health NTP NIEHS Teratology Society member since
