The Western Society for Pediatric Research (WSPR) welcomes investigators from all nations and at all levels of career to apply for membership! As a young investigator engaged in clinical or laboratory research in pediatrics, you will have the opportunity to join an organization whose mission is to encourage research endeavors at all levels. Through our co-sponsorship of the Pediatric Academic Societies’ (PAS) Annual Meeting, we provide a forum for the presentation and dissemination of innovative ideas and research. Most important, the Society actively supports the development of future pediatric scientists by our sponsorship of trainee and young faculty travel awards, and recognizes outstanding research and education in pediatrics through sponsored awards.
