The Neonatal Society is a leading academic society, the aim of which is to promote neonatal science. We do this by inviting you to present your original scientific research at our meetings which also feature keynote speakers from across the globe. Society meetings are held three times a year, two meetings in London and a summer meeting held elsewhere in the UK or Europe.

The Society has a well-established track record of fostering new research by the award of prizes to leading young investigators, as well as a student research bursary. Abstracts from presentations are reviewed by the Society committee prior to publication online, and all such abstracts back to 2001 are available free of charge online in this site, fully indexed and searchable.
