The Annual Meeting provides us with the opportunity to promote our shared vision and scientific identity as researchers focused on the causes, manifestations, intervention, and prevention of structural and functional birth defects, developmentally-mediated disorders, and reproductive health. It also is an expression of our scientific diversity as a Society of clinicians, scientists, and science policy regulators, from academic, industrial, and government sectors. There is no better occasion to learn about the latest scientific research in teratology, to interact with internationally known experts, to meet project officers and representatives from funding agencies, and to network with old friends and colleagues. So, don’t put it off! Register and submit an abstract for the annual meeting today!
