Personal profile

Research interests

Clare’s research is focussed on understanding the total microbial community response to transient pathogens and mapping successional changes in microbial community members as a precursor to the onset of disease state. Clare works closely with a number of clinicians and researchers and is committed to advancing the understanding of disease progression in order to improve patient health.

In addition, the role of host genetics in shaping microbial communities in animal and human systems is of particular interest especially in the mechanism of chemosensory individuality. 

Current areas of research are in the development of the neonatal gut microbial community and the changing gut dynamics that lead to necrotising enterocolitis and the impact of feeding and probiotics in disease progression. 

Clare's research group also looks at the polymicrobial nature of COPD and CF lungs in stable and non stable patients and the passage, persistence and survival of pathogenic microorganisms in hospital environments.
