World Microbiome Day 2022: let’s focus on microbiota research!

Have you heard about the World Microbiome Day? This is today! Every year, on June 27, all eyes are focused on the billions of micro-organisms that populate our bodies... and on new medical advances. World Microbiome Day aims to support researchers around the world to spread the importance of microbiota on health. To mark this special day, the Biocodex Microbiota Institute is handing the floor to one of the most promising international research community: Biocodex Microbiota Foundation national grant winners.

It's a faithful relationship. For the third year, Biocodex Microbiota Institute is celebrating World Microbiome Day running with two objectives: raise awareness among lay public about the importance of microbiota and valorize microbiota research through the Biocodex Microbiota Foundation national grant winners.

They are scientists, professors, physicians specialized in different specialties (gastroenterology, pediatrics, neurology, cardiology, microbiology, pharmacokinetics…). They come from Portugal, Finland, Belgium, Mexico, United States… They have made major advances in the role of the microbiota on health and associated diseases… And they all have won the Biocodex Microbiota Foundation national’s grant!

Since 2017, The Biocodex Microbiota Foundation rewards national research initiatives which aim to understand the interaction between microbiota and different diseases. On World Microbiome Day 2022, in order to give visibility to researchers, the Biocodex Microbiota Institute gives the floor to the national grant winners through dedicated interviews.

What did the Biocodex Microbiota Foundation national research grant allow them to do? What impact have their research results on patient care? Available on the HCPs’ dedicated section, these testimonies give us a clear idea of the variety and diversity of research projects currently underway. These interviews will be activated via the Institute Twitter’s account during 10 days and Biocodex Microbiota Foundation’s LinkedIn by June 27st. Don’t hesitate to share and spread the good new!
