My research interests continue to be centred on immunity to gastrointestinal nematode infections, particularly Trichinella spiralis and Trichuris muris. Current research is focussed on the immunoregulatory mechanisms operating during chronic infection, in terms of suppression of host protective immunity, regulation of pathology and modulation by the parasites themselves. We are investigating cytokine networks, parasite immunomodulatory molecules utilising the extensive transgenic facilities we have. We are also using quantitative genetics to define genes controlling resistance and susceptibility. We have fostered numerous collaborations both within and outside Manchester including taking a lead on the Trichuris muris genome project with the Sanger Centre.
