Areas of Expertise: biofilms formation, biofilm eradication, biofilm detection, probiotics, bacterial gene expression
We study the eradication of bacterial pathogens in the gut but not at the expense of beneficial microbes; we are creating formulations of probiotics that are more effective and durable to protect the gut from infections. In addition, we are developing diagnostics to identify bacterial pathogens in the form of biofilms that act as reservoirs in food processing of infectious agents.
