About this entry

Our team has been working in the field of environmental microbiology for over twelve years, with a strong focus on characterizing phenotypic traits of microbes to understand their ecology by combining dynamic imaging and microfluidic technology. Our research has been published in leading journals including Science, Nature Reviews Microbiology, Nature Physics and PNAS. Now, we aim to apply our expertise to develop a disruptive point-of-care diagnostic method for fast and accurate (i) identification and (ii) antibiotic susceptibility testing of clinically relevant pathogens.
