School seminar series: Nutritional immunology: A multidimensional approach
23 August 2013
Dr. Fleur Ponton, School of Biological Sciences, The University of Sydney
Nutrition is critical to immune defence and resistance to pathogens, with consequences that affect not only the health, welfare and reproductive success of individual organisms, but also have profound ecological and evolutionary implications. My research focuses in better understanding the network of interactions that define the relationships between nutrition, immune function, infection, and microbiota to provide a more comprehensive and robust understanding of the key determinants of the outcome of host-pathogeninteractions.
