44th Annual European Teratology Society Meeting

ETSOC16 Annual Conference

The 44th annual meeting of the European Teratology Society takes place in the O’Callaghan Alexander Hotel, Dublin on 11th – 14th September 2016.

Key sessions for ETS 2016 will include:

  • Education Course: Juvenile Toxicity
  • Maternal Health in Pregnancy
  • Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology: Regulatory Updates
  • The Placenta
  • Young Scientist Symposium

Diabetes mellitus, obesity and epilepsy are some of the most common conditions that can cause pregnancy complications. The underlying mechanisms and clinical management of these conditions will be discussed in the symposium ‘Maternal Health in Pregnancy’. Although rats and rabbits are valid models in the evaluation of potential teratogens, interpretation of their transplacental xenobiotic transfer data is precarious.

The Placenta symposium will examine suitable models of human placental function and health. The Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology: regulatory updates symposium will address key issues such as the “Addition of ED parameters to OECD guidelines for industrial chemicals” and updates on the proposed changes in the ICH S5 guideline.

ETSOC16 will also have a Young Scientist symposium which provides an invaluable opportunity for our student/young scientists to present on a diverse range of topics in a symposium forum.

The programme will also include the ETS/TS debate on “GMO’s/Glyphosate and Development”, the ETS Presidents award lecture, the ETS/Elsevier best manuscript presentation, free communication and poster presentations.

Emeritus Associate Professor Shay Giles (Vice President Elect of the ETS) and Dr Deirdre Brennan, Lecturer in Anatomy are among the local conference organising committee.
