About this Research Topic

Manuscript Submission Deadline 31 March 2023

Here we present the Toxicology ‘Emerging Talents in’ collection, a series dedicated to highlighting the emerging talent of student researchers within Toxicology with an emphasis on Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology.

Across the world, students are undertaking key research as part of their education in Toxicology; however, most of this work is not communicated to a wider audience. We recognise that this is because many student researchers find the thought of peer-review daunting. Here, peer-review is considered a collaborative process and our interactive peer-review is tailored to provide hands-on guidance and constructive feedback to researchers. Our Topic Editors are committed to the development of emerging talents and want to see student researchers strive for success at publications.

The research presented in this collection highlights the quality and diversity of student researchers across the field of Toxicology, with a focus on Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology. We welcome contributions in the form of original research, review, mini review, case report, hypothesis and theory, perspective, both experimental and computational studies that cover, but are not limited to, following themes:

1. Deepening our understanding of the pathological pathways and mechanisms underlying fetal programming, e.g. to feed into development of adverse outcome pathways (AOPs) and in silico methods
2. Developing in vitro tests, ultimately to cover the full reproductive cycle
3. Opening up our understanding of interaction between exposures and between life stages of exposure, e.g. by studying combinations of exposures rather than single exposures, and if prenatal exposures increases the susceptibility to (other) exposures later in life
4. Studying the consequences of early exposures on health late in life
5. Characterizing functional changes in life after birth, e.g. relating to the function of offspring cardiovascular, immune, kidney and female and male reproductive systems etc.
6. Investigating how exposures of the parents prior to conception may contribute to effects in the offspring, e.g. male mediated developmental toxicity
7. Exploring the many birth cohorts worldwide, including the possibility to take advantage of the increasing age of the children, enabling investigation of health in generations.
8. The study of less common exposures, including new types of chemicals, occupational factors and exposure by inhalation.
9. Toxicological studies investigating male and female fertility in adulthood, including the reversibility of effects
10. The Study of the role of the placenta in developmental toxicity of chemicals

This Research Topic will help to identify emerging leaders and allow the community to follow the aspiring careers of emerging, talented researchers. #EmergingTalentsIn

Please note: To be considered for this collection, the first and/or collaborating first, or second author will be a registered undergraduate or graduate student at time of submission.

Keywords: Fetal Programming, AOPs, Early Exposure, Fertility, Occupational Hazards, Placenta, Reproductive Toxicity, Developmental, Emerging Talents, Toxicology, #CollectionSeries


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
