IISPV awards Nil Novau for his oral short communication at PhD Day

Posted on 10-06-2024


Recently, several PhD students of TecnATox are receiving awards after their presentations in PhD Days. After Shubh Sharma's success at the ETSEQ Doctoral Day, Nil Novau Ferré has achieved the second award for the best oral short communication at the IISPV PhD Day, held on June 6 at URV's Faculty of Medicine.

His presentation, entitled Exploring the Gut-Brain Axis: Nutritional Modulation of the Microbiota in ADHD and ASD, demonstrates significant differences in gut microbiota between children with ADHD and ASD, identifying specific bacterial taxa associated with each condition. These findings, derived from a collaboration between the Nutrisam and NuMeH research groups, suggest that probiotic supplementation could be a promising therapeutic avenue by modifying the gut microbiota composition.

Congratulations, Nil!
