Meet Me in Tucson

Headed to Tucson!


In a few days colleagues from around the world will convene in Tucson, Arizona for the 53rd Annual Meeting of the
Teratology Society.

The program offers an exciting variety of scientific sessions on topics including advances in genomic sciences, application of imaging technologies, predictive developmental toxicology, diabetes and pregnancy, chemotherapeutics, and a tribute to a recently deceased Society member, Dr. Patricia Rodier. Once again, we are pleased to offer joint sessions and a joint registration fee to maximize interactions with our sister societies, Neurobehavioral Teratology Society (NBTS) and Organization of Teratology Information Specialists (OTIS).

The program includes three education courses, eight cutting-edge scientific symposia, one workshop, eight lectures, and one roundtable. There are also opportunities for open research communications such as platform talks (five sessions) and poster presentations (two sessions).
The session topics address newer concepts in the field and are likely to generate lively interaction.

The Education Course will be offered in two parts on Saturday. The morning course is entitled Principles of Teratology which focus on basic concepts and research applications.  The afternoon course is entitled Advanced Technologies in Prenatal & Postnatal Screening & Diagnosis: From Basic Science to Clinical Applications and will discuss the advanced technologies and screening tools for use in the pre-and postnatal diagnosis.

Our Tuesday Sunrise Mini Course, Advanced Technologies in Genetics and Genomics: Applications to the Prevention of Birth Defects and the Communication of Risk, will address current technologies in genetic testing and applications of technologies and communication of risk.

The agenda for the Teratology Society 53rdAnnual Meeting is available on the Teratology Society website.

The view from the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort offers a magical perspective high above Tucson’s Catalina Mountains, where this stunning natural retreat offers a variety of activities, signature services and experiences to relax, energize and inspire meeting attendees and their guests.

We applaud the 2013 Program and Education Committees for preparing an outstanding meeting. The 2013 program represents the great strengths of our multidisciplinary society and presents something for everyone. The Teratology Society invites you to join us in Tucson, Arizona for an exciting and rewarding scientific meeting.
