Students research probiotics to assist with Chrohn's disease therapy

 

Future Project collaborator Vitramed Bioscience, are providing students with a chance to work on generating new knowledge to assist patients with digestive diseases. 

Ted Simpson, Scott Miller, Shubhang Hariharan and Ben Fraser are working on a probiotic bacterium. They are investigating the gut-transit tolerance of the Bacteria to determine whether it can be delivered orally. They can regularly be seen plating their bacterium and counting colonies, with the hope being they find evidence that will pioneer how this probiotic is delivered to patients with gastrointestinal issues. Their work is part of the larger goals and aspirations of Vitramed to bring relief to people suffering with digestive diseases such as Crohn's Disease.
