Description

Main research question/goal

During this project, ILVO and innovation-driven company Rousselot collaborate to develop new products with human health benefits. Rousselot is a world-leader in gelatin-based products. The Rousselot Gent plant incorporates an expertise center and pilot hall where new production processes are tested. This VLAIO-funded project supports exploration of new application areas for Rousselot’s products.


Research approach

During this collaboration, ILVO will establish in-house scientific experience with minipigs as a model for human health.


Relevance/Valorisation

For both project partners, this project holds promise for innovation. By combining feed evaluation and preclinical research experience, ILVO contributes its multidisciplinary and integrated approach. ILVO will develop a widely applicable minipig-based model for human health, which finds its first industrial application with Rousselot.
