Get Involved!

Why Should Students Get Involved?
             It is imperative that health science research is promoted among young students with fresh ideas, a motivated spirit, and a drive to bring this field into deeper cutting-edge waters. Health science, more specifically, teratology, is the study of birth defects; a field that is rapidly evolving and is exceptionally multidisciplinary. The Teratology Society provides an excellent medium for students and investigators to network together, ask questions, develop critical thinking, and broaden research skills in this fascinating field. Participating in the Teratology Society, giving a talk or presenting a poster, going to lectures, and inquiring about other investigators research provides an excellent basis to understanding what it takes to make a mark in the field. Being engaged, not only develops research skills, but also contributes to personal growth with the goal of becoming a well-rounded individual, skillfully and socially.
