Danone and Yakult confirm probiotics research grants

30-Oct-2009

The Global Probiotics Council (GPC) has announced two $50,000 grants for young researchers in the field of probiotics.

GPC, a committee formed by Danone and Yakult, is running the grant scheme for the third year in a row to encourage research into probiotics and gastrointestinal microbiota.

“The quality of applicants and the caliber of science that we saw the past two years were exceptional and we expect to see the same this year as the level of interest in probiotics continues to rise with emerging science,” said Sven Thormahlen, executive vice president for R&D at Danone Research.
