Research Interests:

Alix is interested in the effects of ageing on the human colon, and uses a number of techniques to investigate cellular changes which occur with advanced age. She is also studying potential causes for these changes, with the aim of contributing towards future treatments. In addition, Alix is currently developing new methods of cell culture to study the ageing process using human tissue obtained (with consent) from surgeries.
