BUILD Dairy and Glanbia fund 2 year scholarship for Yuki Qu

The Dallas lab was awarded a grant from the BUILD Dairy program in partnership with Glanbia that will provide 2 years of tuition and research support for Yuki Qu to complete a masters program in Food Science with a focus on Dairy Science. During this time, Yuki will be examining the digestion, absorption and antimicrobial and immunomodulatory actions of of kappa-casein glycomacropeptide (GMP), a peptide that is highly abundant in whey protein isolate. We are working in partnership with Samaritan Health Services to sample digesta from the stomach and intestine of healthy adults after consuming the GMP supplement.
