Aindrias Ryan

Lecturer - Medical Biology

Aindrias graduated in Microbiology at University College Dublin where he also completed a PhD in Infection Biology. His postgraduate research used novel mucosal models of infection to study host-pathogen interactions in cystic fibrosis disease specifically focusing on how the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa colonies the respiratory mucosa.

Subsequently, he studied Salmonella pathogenesis at Imperial College London in the Centre for Molecular Bacteriology and Infection specifically focusing on how effector proteins of the type three secretion system of Salmonella Typhimurium interact with host cells.

He has also investigated the role of human stress hormones on bacterial pathogenesis at the University of Birmingham. Microbial endocrinology is the study of how microorganisms respond to hormones produced by the host. Human stress hormones suppress the immune system and promote increased bacterial virulence.

Aindrias’s main area of interest is in host-pathogen interactions and bacterial based immunotherapies as a treatment for cancer and teaches on the Medical Microbiology and Cancer Biology modules.
