Thank you for attending the 54th Annual Meeting of the Teratology Society. To help keep track of the many exciting events at the meeting, we will be sending you nightly reminders. These reminders will also be available as Blog articles via BDR Connection.
The Education Course on Saturday morning, Frontiers in Developmental Biology, focuses on advances in the field of developmental biology with implications for birth defects research. Topics include: effects of microbiome on development, genomic approaches to understanding development, role of cilia in embryogenesis, and effects of nutrition and malnutrition on the developmental program. A light continental breakfast will be provided for course registrants from 7:30 am-8:00 am. This session also includes the Narsingh Agnish Fellow lecture entitled Of Embryos and Tumors: The Relevance of Teratology presented by Dr. John DeSesso.
The afternoon Education course, Mechanisms of Abnormal Embryonic Development, includes the role of oxidative stress in teratogenesis, epigenetic mechanisms of gene regulation, cellular signal transduction pathways, and gene regulatory networks.
The Education Courses require separate registration. To register for either course on Saturday, please visit the registration desk which opens at 7:00 am.
