Research on health & nutrition
Digest Science, digestive tract diseases and nutrition research foundation
Roquette founding member of a state-approved research foundation: Digest Science
After having sponsored programs such as EPODE for children’s nutrition, collaborated with AFDIAG (a French association of people intolerant to gluten) while working towards awareness for the environment, balanced food and preventive nutrition, Roquette committed itself to being a founding member of DigestScience.
DigestScience aims to “keep at the heart of its actions developmental innovation that best serve the patient, maintaining as its goal the improvement of their care and quality of life”. The works undertaken for quite a few years by doctors and researchers of the Nord-Pas de Calais region on the MCMI theme have resulted in the creation of a Thematic Research and Care Center (CTRS), including 14 research and care units which execute a high-level of applied research, structured within a unity of place, moving from laboratory to patient bed.
The first French state–approved research foundation on digestive and nutrition diseases
With this foundation, Roquette pledges to work side by side with prominent researchers: professors Desreumaux, Cortot, and Colombel, for a center of excellence serving the cause of general interest. This undertaking intends to provide ways for supporting medical research that focuses on health issues affecting a great percentage of the population.
