The environment at fetal and early postnatal development stages is of crucial importance for gene expression and can affect development and disease risks through to adult life. During these vulnerable stages, the timing of exposure and the related gene-environment interactions are key. The PPToxVI conference, taking place in May, aims to assess the weight of evidence and highlight new achievements on the effects of prenatal and early postnatal exposure to toxicants, as well their effects on the development.
