Eastern Society for Pediatric Research 

About Us

The mission of the Eastern Society for Pediatric Research is to foster the development of careers in academic pediatrics.


  • ESPR supports pediatric researchers conducting clinical, basic science, and translational research as well as quality improvement and implementation science.
  • Members come from across the northeastern region of North American – from Washington DC to Nova Scotia and Quebec. Most are based in New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Maryland and Connecticut.
  • Many of today’s leading physician-scientists began their careers with ESPR.
  • Each March the ESPR Scientific Meeting provides a forum for early career stage researchers to present investigative work in a supportive and less formal environment.
  • Affordable dues facilitate beginner and long-term members alike.
