Diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and the lungs represent the most common cause of death in humans and other animal species worldwide. Using bacterial and parasitic models, the overall aim of Dr. Buret’s research is to characterize microbial-host interactions in these systems, and how such interactions may affect gastrointestinal and pulmonary physiology, responsiveness, inflammation, and chronic disease, in an attempt to develop novel therapeutic strategies, that may involve dietary modulation. Particular emphasis is given to the role of microbes in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, and immunomodulation by antibiotics.
