The Gerber Foundation is accepting letters of inquiry for pediatric research grants.
The Foundation is particularly interested in fresh approaches to solving newborn or pediatric problems.Research topics include pediatric health, pediatric nutrition, and the effects of environmental hazards on children under the age of three.
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.
The Foundation gives priority to projects of national or regional impact. Foundation support is not typically ongoing. Project outcomes should be of sufficient impact, if successful, to generate long-term support from other sources.
