PPTOX V  – 5th Conference on Prenatal Programming and Toxicity (pptox)
November 13-16, 2016; Kita-Kyushu, Japan
As the previous four PPTOX conferences, this international meeting focuses on the role of environmental exposures and nutrients during development and subsequent diseases or dysfunctions later in life. The goal of the conference is to showcase new, cutting edge laboratory and human science on the developmental basis of disease and organ function in regard to different diseases, organ systems, and underlying mechanisms. Invited presentations will highlight current knowledge and front-line discoveries and will identify research gaps and challenges in integrating mechanistic and public health science. Previous PPTOX conferences have resulted in reports and publications in Endocrinology, Toxicological Sciences, Reproductive Toxicology, Environmental Health, and Basic and Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology.

Transgenerational Inheritance – State of the Science
This workshop will explore the current research on transgenerational inheritance – the inheritance of acquired phenotypes that persist across several generations, even after the inducing factor has been removed. Since this phenomenon was first described in the early 2000s, a number of examples of transgenerational inheritance in animal models have been described by researchers, following exposures to environmental chemicals, nutritional changes, and a variety of other stressors.
