new scientific information to improve developmental toxicity risk assessment. For the successful application of this report’s findings, the committee believes that multidisciplinary educational and research programs must be conducted. Programs, such as workshops and professional meetings, should be organized so that researchers of developmental toxicology, developmental biology, genomics, medical genetics, epidemiology, and biostatistics can come together to exchange new insights, approaches, and techniques related to the analysis of developmental defects and to risk assessment. By accelerating the necessary research, cooperative research projects would move forward the recommendations of this report.
