Member Societies

Our Member Societies serve the microbiology community through providing resources, building capacity, and stimulating collaboration. Microbiological societies can apply to become a FEMS Member Society, but individuals can apply to become a member of a FEMS Member Society. If you are a member of one of our Member Societies, then your Society can pass on the unique member benefits to your membership by being a part of FEMS 

How to join a FEMS Member Society
Have a look at the Member Societies below and find out more about them, learn how you can join them or contact them.

FEMS Member Societies
Currently, we have one Affiliated Organization, the European Culture Collections’ Organisation. Please note that if you are a member of a Affiliated Organization, you are partially eligible for FEMS membership benefits, as described here.

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.
