January 2013 - eGUT Project Commences

Towards the end of 2012, we were successful in obtaining funding from the National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement, and Reduction of Animals in Research (NC3Rs), to develop eGUT, to model the molecular interactions in the microbiota, validating observed results for a particular application against observed behaviours. In January 2013, we began working on the project.

The funding award has enabled Dr Kieran Alden to join the Kreft lab and develop the tool alongside current members of the lab. Kieran joins from the University of York where he has recently completed a PhD that examined agent-based modelling of secondary lymphoid organ development. As our eGUT tool is developed, more news will be placed on this website.
