The Teratology Society


The mission and vision of The Tera­to­logy Soc­iety are to:

Promote research and the exchange of ideas and research results that reveal the causes, improve the diagnosis and treatment, and prevent the occurrence of abnormal development and birth defects;

To communicate that information to physicians, public health officials, concerned health advocacy and lay groups and other interested parties that promote the elimination of birth defects when possible and amelioration of them when they occur;

And to provide education and training on the causes, mechanisms, treatment and prevention of birth defects.
