Project Title: Investigation of host-pathogen interactions in animal gut model

Mr Ding Yichen is a PhD student working under the supervision of Asst Prof. Yang Liang. His current project focuses on how various factors such as nutrients, iron, prebiotics and probiotics would affect the colonisation of pathogens in the gut, as well as immune responses of the host. Using Pseudomonas aeruginosa as model organism, he is also looking into the effect of virulence factors such as pili, flagellum and EPS on colonisation and translocation of P. aeruginosa in mice gut.
