Volunteer: Tina Silovic
Tina Silovic is an active microbiology researcher whose main research interests lie in marine microbial ecology. This stems from her PhD and postdoctoral positions at the Center for Marine Research (Croatia) and at the Institut Méditerranéen d’océanologie (France) respectively. She is currently a research associate in Croatia working on bioprospecting Adriatic algae, mainly cyanobacteria. Tina is also interested in science communication and translating scientific concepts for different audiences.
Tina leads a FEMS Opportunities Board Taskforce Project by connecting the microbiology community to microbiology jobs all over the world on the Opportunities Board.
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.
