We are interested in how immune cells work, and how differences in immune-related genes may predispose to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We are looking at the genes, molecules and cells that keep our intestines healthy, and how these go wrong to cause IBD. This work aims to identify new targets for therapy, and provide information on potential risk of developing IBD.
