Marijana received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree from University of Zagreb. Her love for intellectual challenges and research continued in research on bacterial and fungal pathogens. Toxicity of mycotoxins has been the focus of her PhD Research at the Faculty of Science. Investing her time in literature reading and reviews along with continuous education and creative experimental endeavours has broadened her scientific knowledge. In addition to microbiology, mycology, and toxicology, she has implemented analytical chemistry in her work to meet the challenges of a changing environment.
FEMS Microbes is excited to present its latest thematic issue, focusing on bacterial-viral co-infections. Host and microbial factors are critically important for influencing the severity and outcome of infection. Interactions between microbes is an understudied yet important aspect to this process.
