Birth defects and reproductive and developmentally-mediated disorders constitute a major public health concern in the world today. Human development can be affected not only by drugs and chemicals but also by diet, genetics, maternal health, and socioeconomic factors. The Teratology Society strives to understand and protect against potential hazards to developing embryos, fetuses, children, and adults by bringing together scientific knowledge from diverse fields.
Our scientists presented the following posters at the recent Teratology Society conference in San Diego.
