NNI sponsors the Fomon Young Physician Award

Each year the Samuel J. Fomon Young Physician Award is given to a physician, expected to complete their medical postdoctoral training within the next ten years, for outstanding work in the general area of pediatric nutrition, and infant nutrition, infant growth or body composition in particular. 

As the award honors Dr Fomon, a pioneer in pediatric nutrition research, research that impacts infant feeding is of particular interest. 

The 2012 award is sponsored by the Nestlé Nutrition Institute and will be presented during Experimental Biology 2012, taking place in April in San Diego. 

The 2011 award was presented to Renan Orellana, Baylor College of Medicine. 

We look forward to sharing details of the 2012 winner after the presentation in April.
