GENTILLY, France, June 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the last several years, there has been growing interest and much research in the role and importance of microbiota in maintaining health. The increase in probiotic prescriptions by healthcare professionals or the success of books such as "Gut" by Giulia Enders have proven the need for education and scientific data on gut microbiota for both healthcare professionals and individuals.
The Biocodex Microbiota Institute, the major international platform housing information based on scientific literature on human microbiota, and the World Gastroenterology Organization, a federation of over 100 member societies and four regional associations of gastroenterology share the same goal of educating HCPs and individuals on gut microbiota. To mutualize and deepen their efforts to raise awareness around gut microbiota, they've announced the signing of a partnership.
The two partners will implement different initiatives throughout 2020 including dedicated sessions during special events such as the WGO congress in December. Scientific content will be available on the respective newsletters (e-WGN & Microbiota) and social media channels.
"At Biocodex, we have built our reputation as a pioneer and leader in the world of human microbiota, driven by scientific rigor. We are delighted that our scientific expertise is recognized by the WGO, an organization striving to improve the standards in training, education, and the practice of Gastroenterology. Together, we will increase our efforts toward growing awareness around gut microbiota so as to create valuable assets in this field," declares Murielle Escalmel, Corporate Scientific Communication Director- Global Operations/Medical.
"This partnership will clearly help us to raise our position as the global guardian of digestive health. We are excited to partner with the Biocodex Microbiota Institute, a best-in-class data platform as their deep expertise will be invaluable to WGO's continued commitment in the field.
