Dr. Gerber is a graduate of Tufts University School of Medicine, diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine, Rheumatology sub-specialty and the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. She was the Chief of the Rehabilitation Medicine Department at the Clinical Center, National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland from 1975-2005. She was instrumental in helping to develop the sub-specialty of rehabilitative rheumatology. 

In 2006, Dr. Gerber joined the faculty of George Mason University, Fairfax, VA. Her academic department is Health Administration and Policy and research activities are in the Center for the Study of Chronic Illness and Disability. She is University Professor. She is co-director of the Laboratory for the Study and Simulation of Human Movement at Mason. She is Director of Research for the Department of Medicine at Inova Fairfax Hospital and the Outcomes Program at the Betty and Guy Beatty Center for Integrated Research there. She is a special volunteer in the Rehabilitation Medicine Department, Clinical Center, NIH. 

Her research investigates causes of functional loss and disability in chronic illness. Specifically, she studies human movement and the mechanisms and treatment of fatigue. Dr. Gerber is/has been a recipient of National Science Foundation, PNC Foundation, NIDRR, NIH and Department of Defense funding administered by the Henry Jackson Foundation.   

Dr. Gerber has authored or co-authored more than 125 peer reviewed publications, numerous chapters and had served on the editorial board of the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation until 2012.  

Dr. Gerber teaches at the graduate and undergraduate levels, serves as faculty advisor to PhD students and has served on numerous Doctoral and Masters thesis committees. 

She has been the recipient of the Distinguished Service Award of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAMPR) and the Oncology Section of American Physical Therapy Association; the Distinguished Academician Award of the Association of Academic Physiatrists, the WISE/Geico award, NIH Director's Award, Surgeon General Award for Exemplary Service and the Smith College Medal. She is a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences. 2013 she delivered the Zeiter Lecture at the AAPMR 75th anniversary. 

Dr. Gerber has served on many national committees and advisory boards including: Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation (1995-present), Kessler Medical Rehabilitation Research (2001-present), National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research, (2007- 2011), Blue Ribbon Panel Assessing Rehabilitation /Research, NIH (2011-2012). She is/has been a grant reviewer for NIDRR, NIH, NSF, VA. She served on the Board of Governors of the AAPMR 2005-2008.
