The Gerber Foundation is accepting concept papers for health and/or nutrition-related research projects with the potential to have a significant impact on issues facing infants and young children from birth to three years of age. Grants will be awarded for research projects focused on care provider issues that, when implemented, will improve the health, nutrition, and/or developmental outcomes for infants and young children. In particular, the foundation is looking for practical solutions that can be easily and rapidly implemented on a broad scale within a predictable time frame to clinical application.

Major target areas for research include new diagnostic tools that may be more rapid, more specific, more sensitive, and less invasive; new treatment regimens that are improved or novel, less stressful or painful, more targeted, have fewer side effects, and provide optimal dosing; symptom relief; preventative measures; assessment of deficiencies or excesses (vitamins, minerals, drugs, etc.); and risk assessment tools or measures for environmental hazards, trauma, etc.

Preference is given to projects offering a substantial promise of meaningful advances in the prevention and treatment of diseases and those with broad applicability to the general population on a regional or national level.

Grant Amount: Grants of up to $350,000 are available.

Eligibility: Organizations recognized as tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code are eligible to apply. In addition, organizations must be determined not to be a private foundation under Internal Revenue Code Section 509.

Due Date: Concept papers must be received no later than December 1, 2017. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by February 15, 2018.
