The scope of this year's call is: Beyond the bacterial microbiome

For many years now, microbiology researchers have explored the role gut bacteria play in human health. However, the human gut is home to a rich ecosystem of microbial and non-microbial components with multiple complex interactions.  A better understanding of these interactions is one vital component in completing our picture of the role of the human gut microbiome in human health and breakthroughs could be an important key to making an impact on human lives.

The new Global Grants for Gut Health call for applications in 2024 is seeking research proposals to explore beyond the bacterial microbiome, to elucidate mechanisms of interaction between the host, the non-bacterial and bacterial microbiome in the gut.
