Optimal gut health is an important factor in our well-being. Desirable gut health can be defined as creating an environment in the gastrointestinal tract where nutrients from the diet are efficiently assimilated and absorbed. Our group maintains a core competence in the study of gastrointestinal physiology. Our research objectives are specifically aimed at identifying the characteristics of a properly functioning gut environment, elucidating mechanisms of nutrient absorption, and characterising the protective microbial population within the gastrointestinal tract.
