ISAPP Newsletter – September 2021


In our latest ISAPP blog post, Dr. Karen Scott summarizes what we know about the effects of antibiotics on bacteria in the gut.

We also share Part 2 in a blog series by Students and Fellows Association (SFA) members, ‘Showcasing probiotic, prebiotic and related research from African scientists’. SFA member, Benedictta Chinweoke Okeke-Nwolisa, discusses how soursop juice (a common fruit juice in Nigeria) can impact the gut microbiota of children under five, and its clinical utility as a prebiotic for preventing watery diarrhea. 

ISAPP is pleased to announce the release of new infographic translations. Our popular infographic on fermented foods is now available in more than a dozen languages. We hope this will facilitate broad sharing of the consensus definition and scientific information.

The Students and Fellows Association (SFA) has a new website design! The website has been revised for improved navigation of content relating to past and present annual meetings. SFA hopes these changes improve our member experience and we welcome all feedback. A reminder to all active SFA members to get an early start on renewing their memberships for 2022. The form is now open and the link can be accessed here.
