New Young Investigator Grants for Probiotics Research Announced
Date:11/24/2008

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The Global Probiotics Council (GPC), a committee formed by Groupe DANONE and Yakult Honsha Co., Ltd., announced the availability of two grants for the second annual Young Investigator Grant for Probiotics Research (YIGPRO) today. Each Young Investigator Grant will provide $50,000 over one year. This year, the grant focus is on the role of probiotics and gastrointestinal microbiota in health and disease. The grants are designed to contribute to the advancement of probiotics and gastrointestinal microbiota research in the United States and to attract promising, young researchers into this field of study.

"Groupe DANONE and Yakult Honsha Co. are committed to benefiting human health by advancing research on probiotics. We established the GPC to raise awareness of probiotics and their health benefits through science-based education," said Sven Thormahlen, Executive Vice President R&D, Danone Research.

"We were very pleased with the impressive quality of applications received last year, and hope to see more of the same this year," said Mr. Ryuji Chino, Senior Managing Director, Yakult Honsha Co., Ltd.

Researchers applying for this grant must be interested in understanding the health benefits of probiotics and the relationship between probiotics, gastrointestinal microbiota and the body.

Probiotics are live microorganisms that can provide health benefits to us beyond basic nutrition when they are consumed in sufficient quantities. Substantial evidence is showing that certain strains of probiotics can improve digestive health and enhance immune function. Their use is gaining momentum in the United States as emerging research reinforces the benefits of regularly consuming specific strains of probiotics for specific conditions. These grants will help to advance science and uncover critical mechanisms by which probiotics promote health.
