"The Gerber Foundation’s mission focuses on the nutrition, care and development of infants and young children. Therefore, grant-making interests are focused on health and/or nutrition-related research having a significant impact on issues facing infants and young children from the first year before birth to age 3.

The Foundation is particularly interested in fresh approaches to solving newborn or pediatric problems or emerging issues with a predictable time frame to clinical application. Projects should be focused on issues faced by care providers that, when implemented, will improve the health, nutrition and/or developmental outcomes for infants and young children. Projects may include:

  • Etiologic mechanisms of disease
  • New, improved or less invasive diagnostic procedures
  • Reduction or elimination of side effects
  • Alleviation of symptoms
  • New, improved or less invasive therapies, care, or treatments
  • Dosage or dosing requirements or mechanisms for drugs, nutrient supplementation or other therapeutic measures (under or overdosing)
  • Preventative measures."
