Headed to Baltimore!
In just a few days colleagues from around the world will gather in Baltimore, Maryland for the Teratology Society’s 52nd Annual Meeting.
There will be joint sessions with OTIS and NBTS covering latent functional effects of developmental exposures, effects of methamphetamines, and strategies to reduce the impact of known teratogens. The will meeting will also feature several newly added sessions: 1) a Grant Funding Workshop with agency program officers, 2) a day-long Pharmaceutical Testing Workshop Series, 3) a Roundtable Session with the Society of Maternal Fetal Medicine, and 4) a session with investigators from the National Children’s Study. In addition, there will be numerous career development events designed especially for students and postdoctoral fellows.
The Education Course will be offered in two parts on Saturday. The morning course is entitled Maternal and Fetal Immunology: Implications for the Prevention of Birth Defects and the afternoon course is entitled Infections during Pregnancy: Implications for the Prevention of Birth Defects. On Tuesday of the meeting, there will also be a Sunrise Mini-Course on MicroRNAs. In addition, there will be five platform sessions for submitted abstracts, as well as two poster sessions. The agenda for the Teratology Society 52nd Annual Meeting is available on the Teratology Society website.
Located in Baltimore's Harbor East neighborhood, the Marriott Baltimore Waterfront sits on the water's edge. It is a perfect place to enjoy spectacular views from this Inner Harbor hotel, as well as easy access to the city's finest shopping and restaurants.
