Invitation to become a Teratology Mentor

Hello Teratology Society members,

The Student Affairs Committee has been very active in our mission of attracting and involving trainees in the field of teratology and in the Teratology Society. According to the trainees, one of the most beneficial services we provide is identifying potential mentors to help them navigate the start of their careers in teratology. 

Please consider volunteering to be a Teratology Mentor!  All we need is a short profile to help trainees find you and identify folks with similar interests who have already established careers in this field. Your profile will appear on the Teratology Mentors page on the website and be accessible to students via the Trainees & Careers dropdown menu on and the Student/Postdoc Corner on BDR Connection. Existing mentors may also want to review and update your profiles with current information.

Members wishing to be added to the Teratology Mentors page, please email a short biography (250 words maximum) to Existing mentors who wish to update their profiles may send changes to

Thank you!
