Every day, Mead Johnson’s Global Research and Development team works to advance the science of pediatric nutrition and ensure the availability and use of high quality nutrition products. Members of the team come from 32 countries, each focusing on their area of expertise – pediatrics, neonatology, gastroenterology, biochemistry, microbiology, immunology, nutrition, food science and other pediatric specialty areas.
Our research efforts include foundational studies to determine the critical nutrient requirements specific to each age group of infant and children. This includes in-depth research and understanding of the composition and functionality of human milk.
The team also regularly conducts randomized, controlled clinical trials. Over the last decade, our team, working with academic and clinical colleagues, has published nearly 100 peer-reviewed articles to ensure the body of science generated by Mead Johnson benefits the scientific and healthcare professional communities at large.
