Since 2017, The Biocodex Microbiota Foundation rewards national research initiatives which aim to understand the interaction between microbiota and different pathologies. By promoting scientists from around the world at a key moment in their career, the grant seeks to motivate researchers to continue to explore the world of gut microbiota.

The annual call for proposals is carried out in countries where Biocodex has a subsidiary presence. An independent local scientific committee – made up of individuals recognized for their expertise in the microbiota field – gathers all proposals and selects the winning project to be granted. 

Biocodex Microbiota Foundation in collaboration with Biocodex Microbiota Institute put national winners in the spotlight through testimonies and interviews!
