You are invited to be an active participant in the meeting that will be held June 22-26, 2013 at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson, Arizona. The theme of the 2012 meeting is “Application of Cutting-Edge Technologies to Improve Assessment, Treatment, Prevention, and Communication regarding Birth Defects.”
Plan now to share your research with academic, industrial, and governmental health scientists who investigate the causes and biological processes leading to birth defects and developmental disabilities. It is a great opportunity to interact with experts who share your scientific interests. Maximize your participation by submitting an abstract for poster or platform presentation using our convenient online submission system. The deadline for abstract submission is February 15, 2013. Please note that, unlike in some past years, we will not be extending this deadline. Please plan to submit your abstract before the deadline to ensure your research is considered for presentation at the meeting.
All students and postdoctoral fellows are encouraged to submit an abstract. Trainees who have an abstract accepted for presentation during the meeting and are members of the Teratology Society are eligible to receive a $500 Travel Award, if travel reimbursement is required. Application for Travel Awards must be made at the time of abstract submission. The abstract and travel award application deadline is February 15, 2013.
