2016 Young Investigator Grant for Probiotics Research - Awards of $50k - External Deadline: February 12, 2016
Feb 12, 2016 · 5:00 p.m.– 5:00 p.m. ·
The purpose of the Young Investigator Grant for Probiotic Research is to contribute to the advancement of probiotics and gastrointestinal microbiota research in the United States and to impact academic and career development of young investigators, attracting them into the field of probiotics and microbiota.

Applicants must be interested in understanding the health benefits of probiotics or microbiota and the relationship between probiotics, gastrointestinal microbiota and the body. Candidates must be part of an established research program with the capacity to do research on microbiota and its role in health and disease. Applicants are limited to one submission per investigator. Full applications are due February 12, 2016.
