Alimentary Glycoscience Cluster

Alimentary Glycoscience Research Cluster receives continued support for years four and five of the research programme.

The Alimentary Glycoscience Research Cluster (AGRC) established in 2009 is a collaboration between academic and industrial glycoscientists and alimentary microbiologists, the over-arching goal of which is to extend our knowledge and understanding of the role of glycans in gut microbial ecology, with a view to develop novel approaches to combat gut pathogens and improved probiotic/prebiotic treatments to foster and maintain a healthy gut.

The AGRC are pleased to announce that the Research Cluster has successfully won continued support for the project from the Irish Government and industry Partners. Alimentary Health has participated in the cluster from its inception and is excited to continue this collaboration, which is at the forefront of understanding host-microbial interactions in the gut.
