Byeonghwa Jeon, PhD
My research interests focus on translating basic microbiological knowledge into practical intervention measures to address public health challenges related to food safety and antibiotic resistance. Regarding food safety, my research aims to enhance microbial food safety by gaining a better understanding of bacterial tolerance to stress conditions during transmission. In the realm of antibiotic resistance, I am particularly interested in elucidating the impact of bacterial physiology on the development of antibiotic resistance and tolerance. Additionally, I am working on developing antibiotic potentiators that help control antibiotic-resistant pathogens by enhancing the effectiveness of existing drugs.
