21 January 2004. CHE gene expression call.

7-10 June 2003. Second World Congress on Fetal Origins of Adult Disease. Brighton Centre, UK. "The Fetal Origins of Adult Disease concept (FOAD) concept is bringing new insights into pathogenesis. Poor fetal growth and small size at birth are associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension, Type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and some neurological disorders in adult life. The epidemiological studies which showed this have now been extensively replicated. They have led to the hypothesis that these disorders originate through unbalanced nutrition in utero and in infancy."

2-3 October. Reproductive Toxicology and Chemicals: a matter of timing? Copenhagen. A conference organized by the European Environmental Agency and ReproSafe, a research programme supported by the Swedish EPA. The conference will consider scientific and regulatory challenges created by the impact of exposure timing during development on the nature and the magnitude of the effect. "The conference invites experts as well as generalists from the organisations within the EU, the EU industry and NGOs, and in national governmental agencies"
