2015 FEATURES Award winner, Dr Carrie Duckworth, took a poster highlighting her research work to the Houses of Parliament in London recently.

Her poster, titled “Modelling intestinal inflammation using “mini-guts””, was part of a competition called Set for Britain. She flew the flag for FEAT highlighting her important research into bowel diseases and sepsis.

Photo below shows Carrie with Southport MP John Pugh who was keen to learn about her research and in particular the direct relevance to the breakdown of gut barrier function during sepsis. Well done Carrie!!
