How To Become A Member


Why would I want to become a Student Member of the Teratology Society?

Most students in research tend to be academically well-prepared but often have less idea of what research actually entails and where it can lead. By becoming a member of the Teratology Society, students can really get a hands-on idea of what research really is. Attending the annual meeting provides the knowledge and tools that allows students to grow intellectually and socially.
