Microbial secondary metabolites Novel antibacterial compounds and principles Bacterial ecology and physiology Marine biotechnology
Professor Lone Gram studies bacterial eco-physiology and biotechnology. Her research focuses on aquatic bacteria (freshwater and marine) and is aimed at two clear goals: to control, i.e. kill or inhibit disease-promoting bacteria, and to enable biotechnological use of bacteria. Lone Gram is particularly interested in microbial secondary metabolites; their natural functions and biotechnological application. She wants to control bacteria that cause disease in man or fish and studies novel principles and compounds that can control pathogenic bacteria. Lone and her group are course responsible for courses at DTU and several project students are affiliated with the group. Also, the group has an extensive international network.
