Introduction to Microbiology lecture and lab
My research team is interested in polymicrobial interactions, particularly how microorganisms
fight each other, to identify new targets that could be used for therapeutic interventions.
Our team is also involved in testing new antimicrobial products and their ability
to inhibit or eradicate biofilms.
