Microbiome and Mucosal Immunity

Our research interests lie at the host-microbe interface within the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. This work focusses on understanding the molecular mechanisms which govern the interplay that occurs between pathogenic bacteria, the microbiota and the host organism, namely the epithelial barrier and innate immunity.

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.
