SCELSE marine expert works on “greening” structures put up to protect against rising sea levels

Channel NewsAsia (Digital) speaks to SCELSE’s expert – Dr Stephen Summers – on how transplanting organisms onto sea walls, can help with increasing ecological function and diversity on barren sea walls.

Microbial “Janitors” Clean Up Our Liquid Waste

Check out this free, easy-to-read story for the youth – Microbial “Janitors” Clean Up Our Liquid Waste – in Frontiers for Young Minds, by SCELSE’s very own PhD students & Prof from University of Oslo

Introducing the SCELSE Graduates & Postdocs Association (SCELSE-GPA)

The SCELSE Graduates & Postdocs Association (GPA) was recently launched to foster an environment of support and provide networking and skill-building opportunities for SCELSE researchers.

SCELSE’s Research Structure

Mission: To discover, control and direct the behaviour of microbial biofilm communities and microbiomes
for sustainable environmental, engineering, public health and medical applications.

Environmental Engineering Cluster

Understanding microbial communities in engineered and environmental settings and provide translational outcomes for harnessing of biochemical transformation processes in several key systems.


Meta-'omics & Microbiomes Cluster

The development and application of cutting edge, high resolution, ‘omics, and analytical technologies to understand microbial communities and microbiomes in natural or engineered systems to the level where informed control can be applied.


Biofilm Biology Cluster

Unravelling the mechanisms behind biofilm establishment, development, structure and function to understand and control key aspects of biofilm biology in all settings, including natural and engineered urban environments, host-microbe interactions, public health and medical contexts.


Biofilms & Health Cluster

The Biofilms & Health cluster embraces the societal and health problems posed by bacterial biofilms and microbiome dysbiosis.


Integrative Analysis Unit

The Integrative Analysis Unit (IAU) provides analysis and interpretation expertise, guiding and advising SCELSE researchers on metagenome analysis and related methods, as well as experimental design, data analysis and statistics.
