A meeting was convened so that users of three models for in vitro developmental toxicity (embryonic stem cells, whole embryo culture, and zebrafish) could share their experiences with each model, and explore the areas for improvement. We present a summary of this meeting and the recommendations of the group. Birth Defects Res (Part B) 83:446–456, 2008. Published 2008 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
