gastro microbeThe NIHR Health Protection Research Unit in Gastrointestinal Infections seeks to explore and explain the distribution of diarrhoeal diseases in the population, establishing for whom the disease burden is greatest and why.
 
We seek to resolve how best to deploy novel technologies and develop and apply new methodology for investigating outbreaks and detecting pathogens in the environment.
 
There are six research themes within the programme:
 
  • People
  • Tracking disease in the population
  • Pathogens
  • Places
  • Pathways
  • The microbiome
 
LiLaC is undertaking qualitative research within the People theme which is utilising a place based approach to understanding the inequalities in the consequences of GI infections among parents with young children. The work is being conducted jointly by Lancaster and Liverpool Universities.
