Ramer-Tait to present talk on efficacy of botantical supplements as part of the NGN Seminar Oct. 16

25 Sep 2013    

Amanda Ramer-Tait, assistant professor Food Science and Technology at UNL, will present a talk Oct. 16 entitled " Efficacy of Botanical Supplements in Experimental Animal Models of Inflammatory Bowel Disease." Her talk will be held over the noon hour as part or the NGN Seminar Series at the Nebraska East Union.

Ramer-Tait's research interests include understanding how host-microbial interactions, including gastrointestinal infections, contribute to the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease, including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Over the years, her research has focused on understanding the relationship between host immune responses and the evasion strategies used by pathogens to establish successful infections in their hosts. Her current research activities now combine her interests in both immunology and microbiology to gain new insights into the maintenance of gastrointestinal health and homeostasis.


This free brown bag event is open to all faculty, students, and staff.
