Our Approach

Our mission is to eliminate eating disorders through research.

GFED has been carefully designed to fill a gap in the eating disorders field. GFED focuses on providing funds for scientists to improve current treatments and disseminate best treatments to the millions of patients with these illnesses. We are especially interested in the application of recent advances in genetics, neuroscience, and technology to cure eating disorders.

 

We fund grants focused in three areas:

  1. Young investigator grants to increase clinical research and train researchers.
  2. Grants to develop rapid dissemination of best treatments through state-of-the-art training of healthcare providers.
  3. Grants to apply new technologies to advance and disseminate treatment, including multicenter data pooling and web-based global training.
