The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has invested $5 million in a Danish company that is developing a new type of biologic to strengthen the gut microbiome and overcome resistance to antibiotics. In a statement on 30 August, Bactolife A/S said its technology is designed to reduce the risk of bacterial infections in both humans and animals. Novo Seeds, a unit of Novo Holdings A/S, led a €7 million seed financing round for Bactolife in April 2021.
