Dr. Chapman's career has been spent researching fundamental and applied aspects of antimicrobial agents, focusing on mechanisms of action, transport, and resistance development, particularly as they apply to biofilms.

After a year studying plasmid biology of B. thuringiensis as a post-doc at the University of Georgia he spent two years as an NIH Infectious Diseases Fellow at the University of North Carolina Medical School. During this time he worked on the molecular genetics of Mycoplasma. Since transitioning to industry in 1986, he has been involved in antimicrobial agent discovery and development in both the antibiotics and biocide industries at Hoffman-LaRoche, Rohm and Haas, Proctor & Gamble, and DuPont.


Dr. John S. Chapman earned a Ph.D. in microbial physiology from the University of California at Davis where he developed protocols to generate mutants of cyanobacteria.
