Andrew Day is a clinician scientist, with clinical responsibilities as a Paediatric Gastroenterologist and particular clinical interests in the areas of Inflammatory Bowel disease (Crohns and Colitis), Coeliac disease and Helicobacter pylori infection. The overall objectives of his ongoing research activities are to delineate and define aspects of gastrointestinal inflammation, especially in the context of inflammatory bowel disease, and to define how interactions occurring at the gastrointestinal epithelial border between the host and the environment affect disease pathogenesis and manifestations. This has focused especially upon epithelial responses to inflammatory stimuli and to modulation of these responses with therapeutic intervention, providing clinical relevance to laboratory activities. He has an active laboratory research program focusing upon gastrointestinal epithelial inflammatory responses, with special regard to chronic inflammatory diseases of the gut. Further research themes focus upon biomarkers of inflammation and nutritional therapies in Crohn disease.
