Welcome to the Wu Lab!

We are a diverse group of people studying bacterial biofilms and their role in health and disease. We use oral bacteria as a model to investigate how bacteria-host interactions contribute to the health of the oral cavity and the pathogenesis of oral infectious diseases, dental caries and periodontal disease. The goal of our studies is to identify new targets that are amenable to the development of anti-infective strategies.

Our lab is diverse in members as it is in research areas. We are made up of graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, research associates, and visiting scholars. Our lab is centrally located on the 8th floor of the School of Dentistry Building.
