BMFMS Conference


The Neonatal Society was founded in 1959 to bring together scientists and clinicians with an interest in the foetus and newborn. The object of the Society is the promotion of Neonatal Science. 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.

The Society has an official place in the History of Medicine with an archive box in the Wellcome Museum in London holding committee minutes and abstract books.

The Society meets three times a year. In the spring and autumn there are one day meetings in London. These are free meetings and non-members of the Society are welcome and encouraged to attend.


There are 2 main memberships available for The Neonatal Society: Ordinary Membership and Trainee Membership. Honorary Membership may be offered to persons who have made notable contributions to the study of the newborn.
