Microbiome and Mucosal Immunity
Associate Professor Sinead Corr
Leader of the Microbiome and Mucosal Immunity research group
Our work hopes to characterize the host mechanisms which mediate gut health in response to infectious and resident microbes and to determine how microbes can alter this intestinal homeostasis giving rise to disease. This will enable strategic manipulation of intestinal epithelial defences or probiotic treatment strategies with the ultimate goal of reducing the severity of intestinal infectious and inflammatory diseases.
