FEMS-ASM Mäkelä-Cassell Travel Award for Early Career Scientists

asm_femsThe FEMS-ASM Award supports the reciprocal exchange of one member from each organization to present his/her research at the other organization’s main conference. It has been designed to benefit early career scientists from both organizations by giving them the opportunity to present their work overseas and experience the best of microbiology in the partner country.

ASM will select the member attending the biannual FEMS Congress and FEMS will select the member attending the ASM General Meeting occurring in intermittent years when no FEMS Congress is held.

These awards are to support travel and living costs of the grantee only.

Here, we examined phage defense strategies in four V. anguillarum strains during exposure to the broad-host-range bacteriophage KVP40.
