Research Interest

Bacterial biofilm development is crucial for numerous persistent and chronic bacterial infections in humans. We study molecular mechanisms governing bacterial biofilm formation using oral bacteria as model systems. They are particularly interested in glycosylation and biogenesis of serine-rich repeat adhesins that are widespread in oral streptococci and many pathogenic Gram-positive bacteria such as Streptococcus pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus. Their study is aimed to uncover new and conserved bacterial glycosylation and secretion pathways that are amenable to therapeutic strategy to control bacterial colonization and pathogenesis. We also study the interactions between bacterial biofilms and hosts, and how the biofilm formation modulates vegetation in infective endocarditis and bone remodeling dynamics in periodontal disease. In collaboration with chemists, we are developing small molecule inhibitors that block biofilm formation of oral pathogens and osteoclastogenesis, which may have therapeutic potentials for treatment of oral infectious diseases and other resorption related bone disorders.
