The Deng’s lab at the Institute of Virology takes an integrated approach to study the interactions between virome, microbiome, and the human host. In contrast to the classical approaches commonly used in phage research, we are using single-cell technologies, multi-omics methods, culture-independent techniques, and machine learning to study phages and their interaction with the bacterial and human host for developing novel therapeutics. Ultimately, we are aiming to develop personalized phage-based treatments against infections by multi-resistant bacteria and for manipulating the human microbiome in dysbiosis associated diseases.

We are looking as soon as possible for support in our labs for a
