Nancy F. Krebs, MD, MS, FAAP, medical director of Clinical Nutrition Services at The Children’s Hospital and Professor of Pediatrics, section head of Nutrition, Department of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, has been selected to receive the American Academy of Pediatrics’ (AAP) 2010 Samuel J. Fomon Nutrition Award. The award, which was presented Nov. 13, recognizes outstanding achievement in research relating to nutrition of infants and children that has been completed and publicly recorded.
Dr. Krebs, who served as chair of the AAP Committee on Nutrition from 2001 to 2005, is widely known for using evidenced-based approaches to solving pediatric nutritional problems, both domestically and internationally, particularly in developing counties.
Dr. Krebs’ work in the field of zinc homeostasis has been lauded by her colleagues. Her work exploring the two-way interaction between zinc nutrition and infection has helped to combat malnutrition in developing countries.
“I’m thrilled that Nancy is being recognized by the American Academy of Pediatrics for her many contributions and groundbreaking research in the area pediatric nutrition,” said Steve Daniels, MD, PhD, Pediatrician-in-Chief and L. Joseph Butterfield Chair of Pediatrics. “She is at the forefront of this discipline, and we are lucky to have had her for her entire career thus far.”
She leads the NIH-funded T-32 Institutional Training Program in Nutrition for post-doctoral fellows at the University of Colorado’s School of Medicine, training the next generation of nutrition researchers.
Dr. Krebs has received dozens of research grants, has authored or co-authored nearly 200 articles and abstracts for scholarly publications and more than 70 reviews, chapters and books. She has also presented in national and international settings over 100 talks and lectures on pediatric nutrition topics.
Dr. Krebs earned her medical degree from the University of Colorado School of Medicine. She then completed a residency in Pediatrics and a fellowship in Pediatric Nutrition and Gastroenterology there.
Past recipients from the Department of Pediatrics of the Fomon award include Ronald J Sokol, MD, Professor of Pediatrics, section head of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition and vice chair, Clinical and Translational Research; William Hay Jr., MD, professor of Pediatrics, director of the Neonatal Clinical Research Center, scientific director of the Perinatal Research Center and assistant director of the Training Program in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine; and K.
