Volunteer: Simone Krings

I studied Biomedical Sciences at the University of Liège (Belgium).
My interest for microbiology arose during an internship in the laboratory of clinical microbiology at the university hospital, where I have been handling patients’ samples and detecting antimicrobial resistances. Following this experience, I performed my Master’s thesis on a subject in relation with the gut microbiota, as the fact that we live in contact with such a high number of bacteria keeps on fascinating me. Following my Master’s degree, I have been working on a project about collective kitchens in Belgium, giving me the opportunity to broaden my knowledge in the field of food microbiology, molecular and bioinformatical tools.
Currently, I am looking for new opportunities, as I would like to perform my PhD thesis in the field of microbiology. In the meantime, I took this opportunity to do public engagement with FEMS, as I have great hopes that the OnThisDay project will render microbiology more tangible for everyone.

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.
