Chemical and Engineering News Profiles FFHI Researchers on Preemie Probiotics


Chemical and Engineering News, an outlet of the American Chemical Society, published the article, "Breast Milk Science: Toward Preemie Probiotics" featuring the work of Drs. David Mills, Bruce German, Mark Underwood, Carlito Lebrilla, Daniela Barile, Juan Medrano, and Carolyn Slupsky.

The article demonstrates how these faculty researchers drawn from various University of California Davis departments and programs are able to produce interdisciplinary research that examines the roles of sugar, protein, and fat in milk, as well as the roles of beneficial gut microbes that help process the milk in the infant gut.
