The ESPR Paediatric and Neonatal Pharmacology Section

Welcome to the Paediatric and Neonatal Pharmacology Section of the European Society for Paediatric Research (ESPR)

The Pharmacology section is a young and growing section that aims to study, educate and collaborate within Europe. We aim to increase the awareness about the relevance of neonatal and pediatric pharmacology among scientists and researchers. Improved knowledge and understanding of drugs, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, drug development, and new therapies to protect our patients, will all contribute to improved patient care and outcome.

We aim to:

Increase the knowledge about neonatal and pediatric pharmacology in Europe by:
- Sharing research and knowledge;
- Writing educational papers;
- Organizing education and courses to teach others.
Collaborate with all the other section, because pharmacology is part of the topics that are covered by the other sections (such as circulation, sepsis, lung and neurology) within ESPR.
Improve and enlarge the network of (clinician) scientists in the field of pharmacology and beyond.
Encourage and support young researchers.
