Selected Publications

Current Research

My research interests are concerned with the initial interaction of myeloid immune cells with bacterial pathogens and the development of inflammation. Specifically, my interests include the biology of novel IL-1 cytokines and the therapeutic potential of vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) in humans and also in porcine and murine models. I also have research interests in the development of innate cells vaccines for control of bacterial disease

Past Research

The role of VIP as a TLR inhibitor

Survival of opportunistic pathogens following VIP administration

Future Research

I would welcome enquiries from colleagues regarding any field in which I currently have interests.
