New Grant Awarded to Investigate Probiotic Treatments

An grant by NC SeaGrant was awarded to the Froelich Lab to develop and probiotic treatment for oysters that would reduce the risk of human infections. This two year project provides $152,000 and research on the project has already begun. The goal of this research is to identify and optimize a combination of bacteria that will be added to oysters grown in aquaculture to reduce harmful human pathogenic Vibrio spp.
