Personal profile

Research Expertise and Interests

The focus of my scientific interest is the interplay between the gut microbiota and human immune system.  I am working on developing adequate cell models of human intestine that are physiologically relevant and able to mimic the situation inside the human body.  Through close collaboration with chemists and microbiologists within our School, the aim is to better understand the relationship between both commensal and pathogen microorganisms and human mucosal immunity, and potentially discover novel compounds that will be beneficial in gut pathologies and have positive impact not only on human gastrointestinal system but human health in general.
