Josef Warkany Lecturer
Josef Warkany Lecturer

This lecture recognizes Josef Warkany’s contributions to the Teratology Society. Dr. Warkany was the first person to demonstrate that exposures to environmental chemicals are responsible for production of congenital malformation. His early studies culminated in the formulation of the scientific principles of teratology. This award recognizes a scientist who has significantly contributed to the field of teratology over his/her career. This year’s lecture will be presented by Elaine M. Faustman, University of Washington on Sunday, June 26 at 8:15 am.
F. Clarke Fraser New Investigator Award
F. Clarke Fraser New Investigator Award

This award honors F. Clarke Fraser, one of the founding members of the Teratology Society, for his many contributions to the field of developmental toxicology. The award recipient must be an active member of the Teratology Society with evidence of a successful independent research career in birth defects research. This year’s award recipient is Nicole Churchill Kleinstreuer, NTP Interagency Center for the Evaluation of Alternative Toxicological Methods, NIEHS who will present on Sunday, June 26 at 1:30 pm.
James G. Wilson Publication Award
James G. Wilson Publication Award

This award is presented in recognition of the best paper accepted or published in the journal Birth Defects Research. The dual purpose of the award is to provide recognition to the authors of the best paper and to encourage authors trained in various disciplines to submit high-quality papers to Birth Defects Research. The paper selected for this year’s award is A Comparison of ToxCast Test Results with In Vivo and Other In Vitro Endpoints for Neuro, Endocrine, and Developmental Toxicities: A Case Study Using Endosulfan and Methidathion. Marilyn H. Silva, California Environmental Protection Agency, will present the data on Sunday, June 26 at 2:00 pm.

Birth Defects Research Part B

The 2016 recipient of this award is Timothy F. Oberlander, University of British Columbia, for his research on neonatal effects associated with prenatal exposures (reference paper: Major Congenital Malformations Following Prenatal Exposure to Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors and Benzodiazepines Using Population-Based Health Data; BDRB 83, 1: 68–76, 2008).
Robert L. Brent Lecture

Edward W. Carney Trainee Award
Edward W. Carney Trainee Award

The goal of the Edward W. Carney Trainee Award is to encourage education and training in reproductive and developmental toxicology. This award supports graduate student or postdoctoral scholar travel to meetings that offer significant educational opportunities in the field of reproductive and developmental toxicology, such as the annual meetings of SOT and the Teratology Society. The 2016 award recipient for the Teratology Society Annual Meeting is Deirdre K. Tucker, University of North Carolina. Ms. Tucker, an active Teratology Society student member since 2014 who has served on the Membership Committee, was selected based on the scientific quality of her abstract, “Increased Susceptibility to Mammary Carcinogenesis following a Prenatal Exposure to BPA Analogs,“ its overall impact to the fields of reproductive and developmental toxicology or teratology, and her career goals in these fields.
Edward W. Carney Teratology Society Distinguished Service Award
Edward W. Carney Teratology Society Distinguished Service Award

This award honors Edward W. Carney, Past President of the Teratology Society, for his exemplary dedication and service to the Society and the field of teratology. The 2016 Edward W. Carney Distinguished Service Award recipient is Anthony R. Scialli, Scialli Consulting LLC. Dr. Scialli has had a wide reaching impact on the Teratology Society stemming from his nearly 30 years of membership and service to our Society, his active role in seven committees/focus areas, and his service as the Society’s President. The personal impact he has had on our field is clear as he is known to many as a consummate scientist, a trusted advisor, and an outstanding teacher and mentor to numerous students, fellows, and current members. Beyond being well respected internationally and with an exemplary publication record, his advisory roles to TERIS, US FDA, CDC, and other state, national, and international agencies stand out as examples of his strong leadership within our field. Through these and other numerous contributions he has left an indelible mark on the Teratology Society and the field of birth defects research at large.
