Sunday Sessions Kick Off with the Josef Warkany Lecture

Presentations on Sunday honor the Society's heritage and feature the scientific breakthroughs and excellence of today. Following the President’s Welcome from Mary Alice Smith is the Josef Warkany Lecture presented by William Slikker Jr., National Center for Toxicological Research, US FDA, as he discusses Developmental Toxicology: Putting the Puzzle Together. This lecture honors Josef Warkany, one of the Society founders, by bestowing an award to recognize a current scientist who has significantly contributed to the field of teratology. The lecture begins at 8:15 am and is a joint session with the Organization of Teratology Information Specialists (OTIS).

At 9:00 am, eight students and postdoctoral fellows will compete for the Wilson Presentation Award during Student/Postdoctoral Fellow Platform Session 1. Presentations will be judged for scientific quality and creativity. Join your colleagues and come support the next generation of teratologists!
The Paternal Exposures Impact Progeny Outcome by Altering the Sperm Genome and Epigenome Symposium begins at 2:30 pm. This symposium will focus on the impact of paternal exposures on progeny outcome. Speakers will discuss the underlying mechanisms by which paternal aging, everyday lifestyle, environmental factors, or commonly used drugs affect the male germ cell genome and epigenome and the long-term consequences of these modifications on subsequent generations. 

A platform of attendee-submitted abstracts focusing on Abnormal Neural Development occurs concurrently Sunday afternoon and will take place in the Outremont room.
