Partnering with FEMS
FEMS is a unique, active and diverse network of around 30,000 professionals who are committed to advancing microbiology for the benefit of society in the areas of health, energy, food, materials and the environment. Set up in the UK as a small charity in 1974, today we are a growing coalition of 51 Member Societies from 36 countries across Europe. Many of those in our network are early career researchers. Others are experienced scientists, industry professionals, students and campaigners.
See our Partnership Opportunities handout for more information.
Mycobacteria show a high degree of intrinsic resistance to most antibiotics and chemotherapeutic agents. The low permeability of the mycobacterial cell wall, with its unusual structure, is now known to be a major factor in this resistance.
