January 10th-13th, 2022


The 2022 Prenatal Programming and Toxicity (PPTOX) meeting, the seventh such international gathering, will be held virtually on January 10-13th, 2022.  It will include a mixture of invited front-line presentations, video sessions with prominent colleagues, contributed oral presentations and posters, a trainee forum and targeted discussions. We hope that this PPTOX conference will attract toxicologists, epidemiologists, pediatricians, endocrinologists, basic biologists and other specialists, educators, and regulators with an interest in environmental health, developmental toxicity, and human disease etiologies.

PPTOX focuses on a burgeoning research field that addresses interference in crucial developmental processes during early life, when cells, organs and physiologic systems become fully operational and lay the foundation for optimal functions of the mature organism. Exposures to environmental toxicants during these critical windows adversely affect development, reprogram future organ functions and modify disease risks.  To address these urgent issues, biennial meetings of international researchers commenced in 2007 (PPTOX-Faroe Islands, www.pptox.dk/ to share information and data, develop impact statements and continue expansion of the field. 

Other successful PPTOX conferences have been held in Miami (2009), Paris (2012), Boston (2014), Kita-Kyushu, Japan (2016) and the Faroe Islands (2018), see www.pptox.dk.  Selected  papers and a meeting summary report from PPTOX-VI were published in Basic & Clinical Pharmacology & Toxicology 2019 Aug;125 Suppl 3.
