Unleashing microbial power for a sustainable future: Join us in exploring the potential of omics and bioprospection

Our lab is striving towards harnessing the power of microbial omics to create a sustainable future. We explore the vast potential of translational omics to uncover microbial diversity and genome binning, enabling bioprospection and the fight against AMR. Join us in exploring the vast potential of microorganisms for a healthier planet.

Translational omics

Our lab is advancing translation omics by combining multiple high-throughput techniques to better understand gene expression and protein synthesis. Our primary goal is to identify proteins that are synthesised in response to different stimuli. We are also committed to training the next generation of translation omics researchers to accelerate the pace of research and improve human health.


We are also engaged in searching for new and useful natural products from biological sources, with special focus on marine resources. We use a combination of traditional and modern techniques to isolate and characterise natural products, and collaborate with other labs to conduct bioassays. Our goal is to contribute to the development of new medicines and other products that benefit society while preserving natural resources.

Microbial diversity

Our team is dedicated to studying microbial diversity, using metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, and metabolomics to analyze the genetic and biochemical makeup of microbial communities. We hope to develop new strategies for managing and manipulating these communities for applications such as bioremediation, agriculture, and medicine.

Antimicrobial resistance

We are also working towards developing new approaches to combat antimicrobial resistance, using techniques such as high-throughput screening, gene editing, and advanced imaging. We are committed to working with other researchers, public health organizations, and policymakers to prevent the spread of resistant infections and ensure antibiotics remain an effective tool

Molecular diagnostics

Few of our members are also working to develop molecular diagnostics, which use molecular biology techniques to diagnose diseases, monitor treatment, and detect pathogens. We use PCR, next-generation sequencing, and microarray technology to analyze DNA, RNA, and proteins in clinical samples.
