Welcome to the Perinatal Research Society
The Perinatal Research Society was established in 1969 to foster scientific interchange and communication among neonatologists, obstetricians and basic scientists whose research interests were in the area of perinatal medicine and developmental biology.
The continuing purpose of the Society is to encourage active and productive exchanges and collaboration between young investigators and those more established through the organization of a yearly scientific meeting.
To that end the PRS hosts an annual meeting to present lectures on current developments in the field, followed by dynamic discussion periods. These lectures are presented by nationally and internationally renowned scientists at the forefront of research activities in their respective areas.
Informal interaction of young investigators with senior established investigators is also a high priority of the annual Perinatal Research Society meeting. To that end we invite those still in training and seeking independence to join us at the meeting in the Young Investigator program, and also offer a training workshop to teach trainees how to secure funding for independent research.
PRS 50th Anniversary Fundraising Donations
To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Perinatal Research Society, we have initiated a fundraising effort to support the PRS Educational Fund. Proceeds from this account are used to fund programs designed to support the careers of young investigators and trainees including the Young Investigator Grant Writing Program, the Associate Member Prize, and the PRS-PSANZ Mont Liggins Early Career Award.
