General Meeting Information

Why Attend the 2008 Teratology Society Meeting?

The 48th Annual Meeting of the Teratology Society will be held at the Hyatt Regency Monterey on June 28–July 2, 2008, in Monterey, California. In addition to the fantastic venue, the 2008 scientific program covers important issues in birth defects research and education, ranging from the latest findings in basic research on embryonic and fetal hypoxia to hot topics in nutrition and food safety as they relate normal and abnormal fetal and child development.

The format of the meeting will be slightly different in 2008. In response to the recommendations of the Strategic Planning Session participants and the membership, the meeting will be condensed from five days to four, ending on Wednesday evening, July 2. The Education Course will be presented in its entirety on Saturday, June 28. An extended break will be included midway through the Course, to allow for a leisurely lunch with colleagues or perhaps to join the festivities at the XXVII Annual Volleyball Game.

For the first time at the 2008 meeting, we will offer CME credits to clinicians and trainees for many of the program sessions. This new opportunity, being provided in collaboration with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), will help to broaden the audience at our scientific sessions, while enhancing the professional development of clinicians who deal with integrating findings into everyday practice. ACOG has awarded the Teratology Society a total of thirty-four CME credits for the 2008 Annual Meeting.

Emeritus Members are encouraged to attend the meeting and the Education Courses. Reduced registration rates have been established to assist you in your continued participation in the Annual Meeting. To qualify for this rate you must be an approved Emeritus Member of the Teratology Society.

The Annual Meeting provides a place and time to catch up with colleagues, make new friends, network, and indulge in discussions from philosophical to practical with established experts in the field, new researchers, and students. It is also a place and time to promote and express our scientific diversity as a Society of fellow clinicians, scientists and science policy regulators from academic, industrial, and government sectors. Register by February 18 to take advantage of the savings.
