- the development of intervention strategies for foodborne pathogens (campylobacter, poultry, colonisation, interventions)
- function of innate lymphoid cells in the liver and role in liver disease (immune, liver, obesity, NAFLD, NASH)
- mechanistic strategies for tackling liver disease (liver fibrosis, portal hypertension, treatment)
- development of remote controlled capsule endoscopy (remote cytology, microbiology, tissue, capsule)
- dietary regulation of intestinal epithelial cells (Crohn’s, dietary treatment, intestinal inflammation)
