Birth Defects Research Distinguished Scholar AwardsCongratulations to Dr. Mark A. Canfield, Dr. Adolfo Correa, and Dr. Russell S. Kirby, recipients of the 2015 Birth Defects Research Distinguished Scholar Award for their research associated with national prevalence estimates for selected birth defects published in Birth Defects Research: Part A: National estimates and race/ethnic-specific variation of selected birth defects in the United States, 1999–2001; and Updated national birth prevalence estimates for selected birth defects in the United States, 2004-2006.

The Teratology Society Student & Post-Doc Corner

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
  • Membership looks good on the resume
