Gut microbes in health and disease
The overarching objective of Prof. Simon Carding’s research is to understand how a healthy gut is established and maintained throughout life, and to understand how this healthy state is altered in diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (e.g. IBD), as well as diseases elsewhere in the body (e.g. ME/CFS). This includes other organ systems such as the brain, where he is exploring the gut-brain axis and dementia.
