Volunteer: Cláudia Godinho
Cláudia P. Godinho is a postdoctoral researcher at the Biological Sciences Research Group at Institute for Bioengineering and Biosciences. She obtained her PhD in Biotechnology and Biosciences from Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, Portugal. Her research is based on the exploitation of Physiological Genomics to allow the understanding of the cellular adaptive responses and tolerance of yeasts to environmental stresses. On her spare time, Cláudia likes to get involved in science outreach in the field of Microbiology.

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.
