UNSW medical researcher Keith Ooi has received a $1 million grant to lead a major study to see if probiotics can improve the overall health and life expectancy of children with cystic fibrosis.


UNSW researchers have investigated the impact of probiotics on gut health and cognitive function, and found they don't always live up to their promise and could even have negative impacts on memory.


For the first time, Australian researchers have found a link between a father's stress levels and learning and memory ability in his offspring and that these negative effects can be reversed by probiotics.
