Professor Simon Carding, expert in Mucosal Immunology will be presenting his talk online via Facebook and Zoom.
Having worked at research centres and universities across the UK and US, Prof Carding now leads a research team at the Quadram Institute in Norwich, developing new research projects relating to the gut-microbiome-brain axis. His team won a 2017 Ramsay Award for research into ME.
Whilst illnesses like ME and fibromyalgia are not fully understood, there is evidence for an inappropriate immune response and GI-tract disturbances. Join us as Professor Carding describes his research findings and where his investigations may lead to in the future.
"There clearly is something abnormal about the microbiomes of the gut microbes and we are getting closer and closer to answering the question - are gut microbes the trigger that causes an auto-immune like disorder in ME?" - Professor Carding
