Volunteer: Carolin Kobras

Carolin obtained her BSc and MSc Biology degrees at Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, before she completed her PhD studies in the Department of Biology & Biochemistry at the University of Bath. Over the course of her education, Carolin developed a keen interest in how antibiotics work and how bacteria become resistant against them. Currently, Carolin is a postdoctoral researcher at the Florey Institute for Host-Pathogen Interactions at the University of Sheffield. Her research here focusses on understanding mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance in the Gram-positive human pathogen Streptococcus pneumoniae.

FEMS Journals and Open Access

Embracing an Open Future

All but one of the FEMS journals are now fully open access (OA), with one journal, FEMS Microbiology Letters remaining a subscription journal with free-to-publish and OA options. Open access is key to supporting the FEMS mission of disseminating high quality research as widely as possible: when high quality, peer reviewed sound science is open access, anyone, anywhere in the world with an internet connection, can read it.
