Awardees for the 2009 Young Investigator Grant for Probiotics Research Announced
Date:7/21/2009

The Global Probiotics Council (GPC) was extremely pleased with the outstanding quality of the applications received for the second year of this grant. A rigorous review and evaluation of all the applications was provided by the U.S. Probiotics Scientific Board Selection Committee, which is comprised of W. Allan Walker, MD, Conrad Taff Professor of Nutrition at Harvard Medical School, Mary Ellen Sanders, PhD, Executive Director, International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics (ISAPP), Richard Guerrant, MD, Director, Center for Global Health, University of Virginia School of Medicine and Balfour Sartor, MD, Distinguished Professor of Medicine, Microbiology, and Immunology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. "We were very impressed with the high caliber of science in the applications received," said Dr. Walker, Chair of the Committee.

The GPC, established by DANONE and Yakult Honsha Co., Ltd. is committed to raising awareness of probiotics and their health benefits through science-based education. The Young Investigator Grant for Probiotics Research was created in 2008 to stimulate innovative research relevant to the field of gastrointestinal microbiota, to support young investigators in the United States, to attract them into the field of probiotics, and to provide preliminary data for future funding from NIH and other funding sources. The global advancement in this growing research field is a key to understanding how probiotic food might contribute to good health in all ages.

"Each year, promising new evidence on the benefits of probiotics on human health continues to emerge," said Sven Thormahlen, Executive Vice President R&D, Danone Research. "We hope the two young investigators will advance our knowledge in the growing field of probiotics and provide insight to better understanding the full potential of 'friendly' microorganisms and the mechanisms in which they promote human health
