About Yunrong Chai

Bacterial biofilms are medically and environmentally significant. We are interested in understanding fundamental mechanisms controlling bacterial biofilm formation and the role of beneficial biofilms in bacteria-host interactions. We are also interested in inhibitory mechanisms targeting key processes during bacterial biofilm development. We use Bacillus subtilis and other related Bacilli species as model systems.
