Welcome to the Perinatal Research Society

The Perinatal Research Society was established in 1969 to foster scientific interchange and communication among perinatal pediatricians, 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 exchange and collaboration between young investigators and those more established - through the organization of a yearly scientific meeting.

To this end the PRS hosts the 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.

Additionally, informal interactions between young and senior investigators is a high priority of the annual Perinatal Research Society meeting. To facilitate communication, we invite those still in training and seeking independence to join us at the meeting for the Young Investigator program. We offer a training workshop to teach trainees how to secure funding for independent research.

Our next planned in-person meeting is at the Sirata Beach Resort in St. Petersburg, Florida, September 10-12, 2021.
