Dr Uwiera's research interests include the development of new animal models (rodents, small animals and livestock), investigating the physiological, and immunological mechanisms involved in maintaining a healthy gut in livestock species and understanding changes in gut function that leads to intestinal injury and inflammatory. He is also involved in many regional, national, international collaborative efforts by providing veterinary, anaesthetic, clinical-medical, surgical, immunological and gross and histopathological expertise
