Brief description Urinary tract infections are among the most common infectious diseases in humans, with approximately 40% of adult women having experienced at least one. I aim to characterise and compare the dynamics of the innate immune response in the urinary tract, in response to uropathogens and characterise bacterial factors affecting such responses. Understanding immune function provides important new understanding into these disease processes that may result in the development of new treatment approaches.
