Raphaël Lami is developing research in Microbial Ecology at Laboratoire de Biodiversité et Biotechnologies Microbiennes, and is particularly interested in mechanisms of coordination between microbial cells by quorum sensing. His research aims to better understand the diversity of chemical messengers involved in these phenomena and their biological roles. The long-term challenge is to identify possibilities to inhibit the effects of these chemical signals, in particular to combat the formation of biofilms or the development of pathogens in the aquatic environment.
