The Institute of Food Research and Jiangnan University have collaborated to initiate a UK-China Joint Centre for Probiotic Research.
The centre builds on long term collaboration between Professor Chen Wei, at Jiangnan University, and Professor Arjan Narbad at the IFR, which receives strategic funding from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC).
After several years of reciprocal visits between the two, exchanging knowledge, training and expertise in probiotics research, the Newton Fund has now provided £250,000 to support a Joint Centre of Probiotic Research with equivalent funding by Jiangnan University.
