Dr Alyce Martin is an ARC DECRA Fellow in the College of Medicine and Public Health, and Flinders Health and Medical Research Institute at Flinders University. Her research portfolio is centred around characterising the functional biology of hormone producing enteroendocrine cells in the gut, with a particular interest in serotonin producing enterochromaffin (EC) cells. She is using her specialst skills in gut endocrinology to examine how EC cells sense the unique environment of the gut, including dietary nutrients and bacteria, and how this impacts fundamental physiological processes such as gut function, metabolism, fat storage and gut-brain signalling.
