Meriem Messaoudene was chosen by the Seerave Foundation, a philanthropic organization, and will receive $200,000 to continue her work on castalagin for two years. She traveled to Vienna last June to present her work to the Seerave Foundation.

“It was pretty incredible to be the only representative of a Canadian team among these American, Israeli, French and Dutch research groups. Only five other teams in the world have received funding and were present! With this grant, we will try to better understand the mechanisms of action of castalagin and how it manages to have a beneficial impact on the microbiome.”
