Professor of Medical Microbial Physiology at the Department of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology (MTC), Karolinska Institutet (KI)

Ute Römling is Professor of Medical Microbial Physiology at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden. Her research focuses on the molecular mechanisms of biofilm formation mainly in Enterobacteria such as Salmonella typhimurium and persistence mechanisms of Pseudomonas aeruginosa world-wide spread clone C. In the NoMorFilm project, Ute Römling investigates the molecular mechanisms of small molecule compounds effective against biofilm formation in Candida parapsilosis  and, optionally, Enterobacter cloacae.
