Fifth Cycle of Probiotics & Microbiota Research Grant Announced
Date:1/4/2012

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the Global Probiotics Council (GPC), a committee formed by Danone and YAKULT HONSHA CO., LTD., announced the launch of the fifth annual Young Investigator Grant for Probiotics Research (YIGPRO). This grant provides two awards, each in the amount of $50,000, to promising young researchers. This year, the grant will continue to focus on the role of probiotics and gastrointestinal microbiota in health and wellness. Applications will be accepted until February 15, 2012.

Danone and YAKULT HONSHA CO., LTD. are the leading global companies on the forefront of raising awareness about the health benefits of probiotics through science-based education.

"We designed this grant program five years ago to attract young researchers to this field of study, and foster scientific research in the United States," said Mr. Yoshihiro Kawabata, Director Deputy President, YAKULT HONSHA CO., LTD. "Based on the results of the past four cycles, we are confident that these grants will lead to scientific advancements that continue to add to the body of literature, and help uncover critical mechanisms by which probiotics promote health."

The cutting-edge field of probiotics and microbiota research is gaining momentum worldwide. The microbes in our bodies outnumber our human cells by 10 to 1, and scientists are continuing to discover how the composition of the microbiota can influence our health in a variety of ways. New research is uncovering the potential functions of probiotic microorganisms, extending far beyond what was originally conceptualized.

"This scientific field has experienced a true revolution in the past few years and we are committed to push it forward," said Jean-Philippe Pare, Executive Vice President Danone R&D.
