RESEARCH INTERESTS:

The primary interest of Dr. Wen’s research is in the areas of microbial genetics and ecology of oral biofilms. Currently, a major effort is being directed to molecular characterization of Streptococcus mutans biofilm formation and identification of novel strategies against cariogenic biofilms and human dental caries. In collaborative effort, Dr. Wen also works on intra- and inter-species communication and its impact on the development, stability, and ultimately, pathogenicity of the plaque microbial communities.
