Gut Health

Acute and chronic gut disorders have an increased prevalence in industrialised countries and represent significant medical and economic concerns. There is now strong evidence implicating the indigenous gut microbiota in many gastrointestinal diseases, including inflammatory conditions, gastroenteritis, immune dysfunction and some digestive cancers.

The human gut is a relatively under explored ecosystem and yet affords the best opportunity for reducing the impact of gastrointestinal disease through dietary intervention strategies. We use advanced gut models to test interventions, such as prebiotics and probiotics, that improve the microbiota composition and activity as well as human studies to further assess approaches.
