Research Overview

  • To underpin the role of the gut microbiota in health and disease.
  • Elucidate host-pathogen interactions, pathogenic mechanisms, and immune response of enteric microbes.
  • Investigate the mechanism by which gut viruses initiate chronic inflammation in the aetiopathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease and other gastrointestinal diseases.
  • Harness the power of gut microbes as novel therapeutic agents.
