- Xi Lab - Biofilms, Water Quality, and Human Health
Research in the Xi Lab mainly focuses on biofilms, water quality, and human health. We use molecular and genomic tools to understand molecular mechanisms of persistence and resistance of pathogens in natural, engineered and industrial environments; transmission routes of pathogens from environments to hosts; and their impacts on health of general public and industrial workers. We are particularly interested in the role of biofilms in these processes. In addition, we use advanced imaging tools, high throughput screening techniques, and nanotechnology to study biofilm development, the spread of antibiotic resistance, and control of biofilm-related infections.
