Birth defects and reproductive and developmentally-mediated disorders constitute a major public health concern in the world today. Human development can be affected not only by drugs and chemicals but also by diet, genetics, maternal health, and socioeconomic factors. The Society for Birth Defects Research and Prevention strives to understand and protect against potential hazards to developing embryos, fetuses, children, and adults by bringing together scientific knowledge from diverse fields.
The scientific program represents active, timely research areas of high relevance to public health and significant usefulness to researchers in the fields of birth defects research and birth defects surveillance.More Information
