Mayo Clinic is receiving funding from the Biomarkers of Gut Function and Health program to identify and validate biomarkers that can guide new ways to improve the health of children in the developing world. The program is part of the Grand Challenges in Global Health initiative, launched by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to overcome persistent bottlenecks preventing the creation of new and better health solutions.
Gastroenterologist William Faubion, M.D., says, “Our team at Mayo Clinic is excited about the opportunity to impact this devastating global health problem, and given this unique partnership between our pediatric population and that of the developing world, this project will truly be about kids helping kids.”
