Our Directors work with the interests of the wider microbiology community at heart, and their lifelong dedication to advancing microbiology has been a positive influence on what FEMS is today.
We are therefore delighted to announce that our Publications Manager, Prof Jim Prosser, was awarded an Honorary Doctorate (Honorary Degree Doctor Honoris Causa) by the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia earlier this month.
This prestigious award was made in recognition of his research in soil microbiology, particularly his work on the community ecology of soil nitrifiers. This includes collaborative research with the Biotechnical Faculty at the University of Ljubljana, as well as mentoring and teaching activities during the past decade.
From all of us, we extend our congratulations to Jim on his outstanding contribution to microbiology.
