Molecular biology of lactic acid bacteria Bacteriophage host interactions Biocontrol in food preservation. Biotechnology of probiotic bacteria Food FermentationsResearch has been focused on the industrially significant Lactic Acid Bacteria. These are employed in the manufacture of a range of fermented foods and beverages and they also constitute the group of bacteria termed probiotic or health promoting. Research interests span both fundamental and applied aspects of these bacteria. A significant contribution was made by my research group to the genetic analysis of bacteriophage-host interactions with particular emphasis on the mechanisms of phage resistance exhibited by these bacteria. This led to the identification of a number of plasmid coded phage resistance systems which were patented and licensed to Chr Hansens in the 1980s. This research was supported by funding from Ireland , the EU and industry. My research group also contributed to the development of a range of genetic tools for the manipulation of Lactic Acid Bacteria and plasmid vectors constructed in my laboratory are currently used widely by the community of scientists involved in Lactic Acid Bacteria research.

Later interests focused on members of the Lactic Acid Bacteria and bifidobacteria that exhibit probiotic properties. Mine was one to the first laboratories to develop a programme for the genetic analysis of Bifidobacterium, work which was done in collaboration with Dr van Sinderen. In addition, I developed an interest in studying the fundamental mechanisms underpinning technological robustness in Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium (in collaboration with Prof Paul Ross and Dr Catherine Stanton, Teagasc, Moorepark).

My research activity has been a major contributor to the development of the multidisciplinary Food and Health programme in UCC. This includes a broad team of scientists and clinicians in areas such as microbiology, gastroenterology, immunology, nutritional science, food science, and molecular biology, pursuing a coordinated research programme to understand the link between microorganisms and food and human and animal health. Strategically, it is proposed to strengthen the Food and Health theme through continued participation in large research centres such as the Alimentary Pharmabiotic Centre and the Food for Health Ireland research centre. These will examine the link between food, microorganisms and health with emphasis on both understanding fundamental mechanisms of interaction and translating research activity to generate applied and commercial outputs.
