Dr LIU Yang
Research Fellow

Dr Liu has a background in molecular biology and systems microbiology. Yang gained her PhD degree from Technical University of Denmark in 2012. Her doctoral research focused on combating resistant and biofilm forming bacterial pathogens (such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus epidermidis) through anti-virulence approaches (e.g. targeting quorum sensing and iron signalling pathways) and novel antibiotics (peptidomimetics). Her current research interests are: 1) biofilm development mechanisms and anti-biofilm strategies; 2) bacterial evolution/adaptation as well as host-pathogen interactions during infections.
