The Microbiome-Gut-Brain Axis and the Rise of Psychobiotics

The Microbiome-gut-brain axis and the rise of psychobiotics

Communication between our gut and our brain is a two-way street. A large part of the signals being sent from our intestines to our brain is thanks to the bacteria living inside us, our microbiome. Our gut microbes have been linked to anxiety and depression, and research is underway to see whether we can manipulate our bacterial populations to benefit our mental health.

A scientist’s opinion : Interview with Dr Síle Lane about re-engineering pharmaceutical research

Re-engineering pharmaceutical research, a scientist’s opinion Interview with Dr Síle Lane, head of international campaigns and policy at Sense About Science. Undisclosed clinical trial results are unfortunately common - how does this impact progression in research and treatment? When results from clinical trials aren’t published it means the same research can get repeated unnecessarily. This ...

EU project : PROTEIN2FOOD

EU project : PROTEIN2FOOD

The growing world population demands increased high-quality protein-rich food sources, while simultaneously considering human health, environmental sustainability, with more effective and ecological agricultural practices, and increased biodiversity. PROTEIN2FOOD addresses these challenges by developing high-quality food protein from multi-purpose seed crops and grain legumes, through optimised, sustainable production and processing methods. Coordination : Department of Plant ...
