As a hub for scientific cooperation, BINC Geneva funds research and fosters collaborations and exchanges to increase our understanding and promote innovation in the field of infant and maternal health solutions.
Through our research partnership programme, we foster collaborative research in our 4 areas of expertise : mother and child health, biotics and microbiome health, brain development, immunity and allergy.
Food allergies are a major health burden globally. There is currently no cure so management relies on allergen avoidance, which causes significantly reduced quality of life2. Intense research effort has focused on developing treatments that induce remission of allergy.
Conception, gestation, and lactation are critical periods for human development. The exposure to unhealthy dietary patterns, excess weight gain and other environmental factors results in a higher risk of pregnancy complications affecting both mothers and infants.
