About DNTS

The Developmental Neurotoxicology Society (DNTS; formerly known as the Neurobehavioral Teratology Society (NBTS)) is focused on studies of the developmental origins of nervous system disorders and their long-term effects on behavior and biology. We define development as a life-long process with several critical windows encompassing all life stages. We emphasize communication, collaboration, and scientific rigor, and our ultimate goal is to improve the quality of life for our next generation and beyond.

The Developmental Neurotoxicology Society (DNTS) is fully committed to fostering the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusivity (DEI) within its leadership, committees, and membership.  The Society is dedicated to providing a diverse, inclusive research community in which persons from different backgrounds are included, respected, and valued as they conduct and share research findings. Diversity includes, but is not limited to, the categories of race, ethnicity, gender, age, socio-economic status, geographic origin, sexual orientation, disability, and religion. DNTS believes the principles of DEI are critically important to our society as multiple points of view, life experiences, ethnicities, cultures and belief systems are essential to research excellence.
