The Endocrine Society is sponsoring the fourth international summit of Prenatal Programming and Toxicity (PPTOX) – a conference series dedicated to cutting-edge discussion of environmental hazards during early life and long-term consequences. PPTOX is one of the premier international venues for scientists to evaluate current knowledge and guide forward momentum for this burgeoning field.

The program includes topics of interest for a wide spectrum of professional backgrounds applicable to individuals interested in the developmental origins of endocrine diseases and mechanisms of developmental programming across the lifespan and between generations.
