Our work is focused on intestinal inflammation caused by interaction of the gut with microbes. This includes both acute gastroenteritis especially Campylobacter jejuni as well as Clostridium difficile whose overgrowth caused by antibiotic use is such an important cause of morbidity and mortality in hospitalised patients. We are also studying diseases characterised by inflammation due to breaches in the gut barrier leading to interaction of gut microbiota and host immune system. These include acute diverticulitis and inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
