Wong Lan Li

Research Fellow
Biofilm Biology cluster, SCELSE


Lan Li joined SCELSE as a research assistant under the supervision of Prof Staffan Kjelleberg in Microbial biofilm, biofilm matrix cluster. Her research focuses on understanding the collaboration between physical and biological factors to gain better understanding of factors contributing to biofilm formation, dynamics, organization, and function. Key to this involves resolving the structures and functions of biofilm extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), which Lan Li has tackled across several model biofilms (e.g., anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) bacteria and Pseudomonas aeruginosa).  Lan Li has also developed several methods for EPS extraction and isolation techniques as well as biophysical and chemical characterizations. Lan Li is particularly interested in understanding the role of higher order structures of key EPS in implementing the biological program of microorganisms, pertaining to both single and mixed species biofilm formation.
