Upcoming Events

Aspen-Snowmass Perinatal Biology Symposium 2019 – Scientific Sessions
August 24-27, 2019
Abstracts are now open for submission – see: 

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.
We hope you will be able to attend this unique and exciting meeting and look forward to seeing you in Snowmass!

2010 Scientific Meeting of the Canadian DOHaD Society

February 11 & 12, 2020
The Banff Centre– Banff, Alberta

DOHaD CANADA is pleased to announce its 4th Annual Meeting to be held at the Banff Centre in Banff Alberta, on the 11th & 12th of February 2020.
This year, the DOHaD Canada scientific program will address new challenges for DOHaD in today’s environment. A detailed program will be released shortly. The meeting provides an important venue for information exchange and dissemination among Canadian DOHaD researchers, trainees, clinicians and policy leaders, and a forum for knowledge translation of the vastly relevant DOHaD research that is undertaken across Canada. This important event is expected to attract 120 participants and will showcase the work of trainees, new investigators and established DOHaD researchers. As we did last year, DOHaD Canada’s meeting has been scheduled immediately before the Canadian Perinatal Research Meeting (CNPRM) to ensure the best possible attendance and reach of our message.

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.
