Nutritional Immunology

Nutrition is critical to immune defence and resistance to pathogens, with consequences that affect the health, welfare, and reproductive success of indi0076idual organisms and also has profound ecological and evolutionary implication. Under-nutrition is a major contributor to morbidity and mortality due to infectious diseases, Likewise, over-nutrition and its associated metabolic disorders may impair immune function, disrupt the relationship with symbiotic and commensal micro biota, and increase susceptibility to infectious disease.

It plays a vital role in recognising original plant-derived compounds with anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties, novel molecular targets that mediate the actions of dietary compounds and botanicals in inflammation & immunity are also explained, examining how diet moderates the gut micro biome and mucosal immune responses and characterizing the inflection as molecular targets for naturally occurring and dietary compounds.
