MyNewGut, a new European project to study in-depth the role of gut microbiota
A new multidisciplinary project called MyNewGut, funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme, has been recently launched. It is a five-year research initiative to enable basic scientific findings in the field of the gut microbiota.
No one questions today the importance of the bacterial communities living in our digestive tract, our gut flora or gut microbiota, for our overall health and wellbeing. However, there is still a lack of more in-depth knowledge that could lead to the development of dietary or lifestyle interventions that could help prevent, for example, diet-related or behavioral disorders.
A new multidisciplinary project called MyNewGut, funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme, has been recently launched. It is a five-year research initiative to enable basic scientific findings in the field of the gut microbiota. The project is led by Dr Yolanda Sanz of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), and brings together 30 partners from 15 countries, including experts from microbiology to computational modelling.The goal is to contribute to prevent diet-related diseases and behavioural disorders through lifestyle changes and microbiome-based dietary recommendations.
You can read more about the project and be up-to-date of the findings at their website http://www.mynewgut.eu.

What to eat or not to eat as a means of reducing IBD symptoms is one of the main queries a patient might have following diagnosis. Although there is no simple answer and dietary changes are not a substitute for medical therapy, to help consider this question, we have prepared a new infographic on the dietary components to promote and limit in patients with IBD.
While the most popular microbiota you may have heard about is that of the gut, the vagina has a microbiota too. Find out more about the relationship between the two and why taking care of the gut microbiota matters for the vaginal microbiota.
