    Centre for Host-Microbiome Interactions

    Millions of microorganisms live in and on our bodies forming microbiomes on different surfaces. Researchers in the Centre for Host Microbiome Interactions study our relationship with these bacteria and fungi in health or in oral and systemic diseases such as periodontitis, candidiasis, oral cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

    The Garnett Lab investigates molecular mechanisms that promote bacterial disease. In particular we are interested in biofilm formation and other key virulence traits that allow bacteria to establish infections and persist within the host/environment.
