Growth & Metabolism / Inborn Errors of Metabolism

Nutricia Metabolics Research Fund

In 2016 we established the Metabolics Research Fund to support research related to the dietary management of IEMs. All healthcare professionals active in the field of IEMs are eligible to apply to the Fund.

In order to further encourage nutrition-related research, Danone Research & Innovation has extended the Metabolics Research Fund, making €100,000 available for 2020.
