Three PPTOX conferences have convened since 2007 with a general focus on the role of environmental exposures and nutrients during development on subsequent diseases/dysfunctions later in life.  The meetings have examined the animal and human data supporting this hypothesis (developmental basis of disease) by disease, organ system, and mechanism in order to review the current state of the literature and to identify mechanisms for the effects as well as to identify research gaps and challenges and to integrate the basic and applied science. The links to the conference websites and their proceedings are available below. The next PPTOX conference will be in Boston.
