2019 Meeting of the Canadian DOHaD Society

February 11-12, 2019
Fairmont Tremblant – Mont-Tremblant, Quebéc, Canada

The 3rd Scientific Meeting of the Canadian DOHaD Society will be held February 11th & 12th, 2019 at the Fairmont Tremblant, Mont Tremblant, Qc.


An exciting scientific program is planned which includes three thematic sessions : Epigenetics and Omics Mechanisms Underlying DOHaD, Vulnerable and At Risk Populations, and Solution-Oriented DOHaD Research. The program will include Keynote addresses by Dr. Tessa Roseboom (Principal Investigator, the Dutch famine birth cohort; University of Amsterdam) and Dr. Robert A. Waterland (Professor, Nutritional influences on developmental epigenetics; Baylor College of Medicine). The meeting will also feature talks by invited Canadian speakers and selected trainees, an Outreach, Networking and Collaboration Event, as well as addresses and updates about the 2021 World Congress on DOHaD that will be held in Canada. A poster session will also be held in conjunction with the Canadian National Perinatal Research Meeting, February 12-15, 2019 (www.cnprm.org).

DOHaD Canada is holding its meeting in conjunction with the Canadian National Perinatal Research Meeting (CNPRM). If you are also attending the CNPRM 2019 meeting, you only need to make 1 hotel reservation that includes the appropriate dates. (However, you still need to register for BOTH meetings separately!)  To register for CNPRM and arrange accommodations for BOTH meetings, please go to the CNPRM meeting site.

Aspen-Snowmass Perinatal Biology Symposium 2019 – Scientific Sessions

Perinatal Exposures: Intersecting Mechanisms leading to Developmental Outcomes

 The program will consist of 9 Plenary Sessions, including the Keynote Lecture and the DJP Barker Memorial Lecture, 2 Poster Sessions, and 3 Trainee Workshops.

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 via plenary sessions, poster sessions, trainee workshops, and informal discussions, with time dedicated to presentations by and recognition of trainees and early career investigators.
Register by November 15th, 2018 and save $75 off your registration!
We hope you will be able to attend this unique and exciting meeting and look forward to seeing you in Snowmass!

DOHaD Canada is delighted to announce that the International Society for Developmental Origins of Health and Disease has awarded the 2021 World Congress on Developmental Origins of Health and Disease to Canada. The meeting will take place in Vancouver 15-19th October, 2021, with satellite venues in Quebec and Banff. The bid was led by Drs Janice Bailey and John Challis with the support of DOHaD Canada and many colleagues from across Canada. We would like to thank all of those involved, and particularly Drs Bailey and Challis. DOHaD 2021 will allow us to highlight our research successes in Canada, and DOHaD Canada looks forward to working with the organizing committee in the development of a truly outstanding World Congress.
