Professor Jeremy Webb

Jeremy Webb is Professor of Microbiology at University of Southampton. His work focuses on the adaptive biology, antimicrobial resistance, evolution, and molecular genetics of biofilms and polymicrobial communities.  His work includes discoveries in the regulation and control of biofilm dispersal, which are now being exploited for therapeutic applications in cystic fibrosis, including the first human clinical trial for a biofilm-targeted therapeutic. Current research also seeks to identify genes that undergo adaptive evolution during bacterial biofilm development.
