Perinatal Exposures: Intersecting Mechanisms leading to Developmental Outcomes
The complex and diverse nature of these perinatal events necessitates that perinatal research meetings themselves be interdisciplinary in nature, bringing together clinicians, as well as applied and basic scientists in various disciplines, and from agricultural and biomedical fields.
The 2019 Aspen-Snowmass Perinatal Biology Symposium, which is the 8th in a series has the overarching theme of the development of healthy offspring and whether there are common mechanisms that determine the long-term consequences of compromised development. This Symposium will bring together clinicians and scientists, established senior and junior investigators, from clinical medicine, basic research and applied livestock production, and from around the world to report and discuss their findings in an atmosphere conducive to frank yet amicable exchange. This will occur across all levels via plenary sessions, poster sessions, trainee workshops, and informal discussions, with time dedicated to presentations by and recognition of trainees and early career investigators.
In terms of the Program, it will be very much like the past meetings, with a Keynote Lecture, the 2nd DJP Barker Memorial Lecture, 7 plenary sessions, as well as Trainee workshops each morning, and evening poster sessions. The plenary sessions will be in the morning and evening, leaving a large block of time in the afternoon and early evening for networking and informal discussions.
The meeting will be held, for the 3rd time, at the Viceroy Snowmass Hotel and Conference Center, Snowmass Village, CO.
Snowmass Village, Aspen, and the surrounding area have a host of summertime activities (see: https://www.aspensnowmass.com/while-you-are-here/see-all-guides/your-first-visit/summer) including hiking, biking, kayaking and rafting, hot-air ballooning (https://www.gosnowmass.com/service-retail/hot-air-balloon-rides/), as well as numerous outstanding dining and entertainment venues.
We hope you will be able to attend this unique and exciting meeting and look forward to seeing you in Snowmass!
