Amsterdam will be the venue for the 43rd Annual Meeting of the European Teratology Society, which will be held on 30th August – 2nd September 2015.

It is my great pleasure to invite you and your colleagues to attend this Annual Meeting filled with state-of-the-art discussions and symposia on reproduction and development. The ETS 2015 meeting will address key topics as transgenic animal models and how to use these at their full potential in DART testing. Contemporary research on inflammation during pregnancy and its effects on fetal development and health will be presented. We will elaborate on the value of developmental research in zebrafish, with special emphasis on the regulatory aspect and distinct uses by the pharmaceutical, chemical and cosmetic industries. From clinical perspective, the developmental issues involved with pulmonary hypertension will be discussed.

The education course will focus on the updated rule on pregnancy and lactation labeling, with an overview on the major changes and how to put the rule into practice. Additionally, a lively debate is expected to arise during the ETS/TS exchange lecture.

You can actively participate on and strengthen this scientific program by submitting your abstract for an oral presentation or poster. Best submitted work will be acknowledged by several awards.

The conference will take place on the periphery of Amsterdam, close to the historical city center and will reveal a glimpse of the Dutch Green Heart area. The conference venue consists of one site with all meeting and hotel rooms. Accommodation options will be available to meet all budgets. It is especially attractive for its easy accessibility from the airport Shiphol and its good connections to the city centre.

Social events will be memorable and in synergy in both the Amsterdam tradition as well the ETS field of interest.

Please feel free to join, expose your submitted work and accelerate at the ETS 2015 in Amsterdam!

I am looking forward to welcome you all.

Warm regards,

Manon Beekhuijzen, ETS vice president
