Research interests

The enteric nervous system and neuroendocrine systems and their roles in co-ordinating intestinal functions in health and disease. We utilise physiological, pharmacological and molecular strategies to elucidate peptide-receptor actions in complex (isolated human tissue) and simple models (epithelial cells in culture).
