As an organization we believe people should be treated with fairness, equality, dignity and respect. We foster an atmosphere of inclusion and equal opportunities, and place value on ensuring the diversity of the microbiological community is reflected in our organization and across all of our activities and have put in place the following policies to reflect and ensure this.
FEMS Code of Conduct – how we aim to ensure all people employed, volunteering, attending events and meetings arranged by FEMS are treated with dignity and respect
Equality and Diversity Policy – people should be treated with dignity and respect, with value being placed on ensuring diversity is reflected in our organization
Anti-Bullying, Harassment and Discrimination Policy – bullying and harassment of any kind is not tolerated
Reporting Process – if we fail to meet your expectation, or our own high standards of behaviour, we want to hear about it.
Journal Policies – we value and protect academic integrity and editorial independence.
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.
