Grant application with abstract submissions are now open.

Applicants for a FEMS Congress Grant should:

  1. be an early career scientist and thus should either have obtained highest academic degree (Bachelor, Master or PhD) less than five years prior the application deadline, or be a PhD student*
  2. be an active microbiologist
  3. be the first author of an accepted abstract for the FEMS Congress of European Microbiologists
  4. attend the FEMS Congress of European Microbiologists and be a registered participant

*periods of maternity/paternity leave, special leave or illness do not count toward this definition

The following documents will need to be uploaded with the application:

Abstract submitters that apply for a Congress Attendance Grant should hold off registering for the Congress until they receive their Grant notification.

Yeast Pathogenesis and Drug Resistance: the Beauty of the bYeast

FEMS Yeast Research is proud to present this latest thematic issue on yeast pathogenesis and drug resistance. In the past few decades, genetics and genomics studies have uncovered traits underlying the pathogenicity and drug resistances of pathogenic yeast. However, we still have a lot to uncover about the complex mechanisms used by different species to thrive in the human host, and much to do to convert this knowledge into improved clinical treatments. This thematic issue highlights the importance of the diversity of genome-scale approaches to unravel the intricate nature of pathogenesis and drug resistance in pathogenic yeasts, bringing together  a diverse range of fascinating views on antifungal drug resistance.
