Results. In recent years, he has published 8 research papers in well-known journals such as Cell Host & Microbe, Science Translational Medicine, Proc Natl Acad Sci USA, Journal of Immunology, and has served as a reviewer for many well-known journals for a long time.

Fu Wei's research group uses microbiology, molecular genetics, systems biology and bioinformatics to study bacterial intraspecific/species interactions, bacterial-host interactions, intestinal microecological disorders, and pathogenic pathogens of intestinal pathogens. And a new generation of antibacterial treatment methods, microbial regulation interventions for chronic severe diseases.
