Birth Defects Research Connection

BDR Connection

The Student & Post-Doc Corner was conceived, designed, and developed by student members of the Teratology Society and is specifically designed to promote student involvement in the Society. The website is an up-to-date forum for communication and information exchange for Teratology Society events, educational materials, and career opportunities as they relate to graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.

The Teratology Society provides an excellent medium for students and investigators to network, ask questions, develop critical thinking, and broaden research skills in this fascinating field. Participating in the Teratology Society whether through giving a talk, presenting a poster, attending lectures, or inquiring about other investigators research, provides an excellent basis to understanding what it takes to make a mark in the field.

Benefits of Becoming a Student Member Include:

  • Access to online services such as job and post-doc postings, networking tips, member database
  • Student Awards
  • Learn New Skills
  • Meet students and investigators in your field of research
  • Join Teratology Society committees
