Florence Dubois-Brissonnet coordinates research programs on adaptation and persistence of foodborne pathogens in food processing environments. She has developed an expertise on bacterial membrane adaptation under stresses through characterization of membrane fatty acid composition. Among others, this specific physiological effector is used to better understand the adaptation of pathogen biofilms and their resistance to disinfectants and natural antimicrobial compounds.
