Participants of the recent SmartTots Workshop for Preclinical Research in Anesthetic Neurotoxicity.

The workshop brought together a diverse, multi-disciplinary group of researchers in an effort to develop a common framework for pre-clinical studies. The overarching goal of this workshop was to develop consensus regarding reporting of studies for publication, so that there is comparability and consistency across different laboratories, and discuss future directions for pre-clinical research in anesthetic neurotoxicity in the developing brain. The workshop was a successful step forward in these efforts. Stay tuned for more information about the outcomes of this successful gathering.
