My current research on biomarkers and inflammation expand my interests form the equine conditions and gastroenterology into “one health”. Several grant funded investigations are associated with the Stroke Research Program of the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) and the ARC Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP) and Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing (IPAS) with collaborative links to The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Royal Adelaide Hospital and Womens and Childrens Hospital in Adelaide. Larger collaborative and multi-centre studies in gastroenterology expand to other Australian Universities and states and include also the NC-State University and the University of Georgia in North America.
