Organisation profile

Mucosal surfaces are the bodies interface with the external environment and must be protected against environmental chemical, physical and infectious insults in order to prevent disease.  Protection of the oral mucosal surfaces is provided saliva and the secretory/mucosal immune system.

Our research aims to understand pathogen interactions at mucosal surfaces and examines basic immunological responses to exogenous stress, immunopathology of autoimmune mucocutaneous disorders and the role of bacterial toxins in the development of cancer.
