Parasites, Immunology and Gut Health (PIGH)

The objective of our research is to understand the interactions between gastrointestinal pathogens and host immune function and metabolism. We aim to develop new tools which can be used to promote intestinal health, regulate inflammation and control disease.

"Our overall aim is to understand how intestinal pathogens interact with the host diet, immune system and microbiome, and use this knowledge to develop new tools to promote gut health in animals and humans’", Associate Professor Andrew Williams, Group Leader.
