What encouraged you to pursue a career in the field of microbiology?
‘‘I was inspired by two undergraduate professors who both emanated an infectious passion
and enthusiasm for science and research. One was my academic supervisor, Eric Cole, who
gave me my first research opportunity, studying the developmental biology of Tetrahymena
in his lab. The other was my microbiology professor, Ted Johnson, who showed me that
microbiology was hands down the most fascinating discipline in biology!”
How would you describe FEMS Microbes in your own words?
‘‘FEMS Microbes is a publication venue for high-quality research across a wide range
of microbial sciences: from fundamental research to translational studies, from basic
physiology to molecular epidemiology, from interactions with the external environment
to mechanisms of survival within mammalian hosts, and more. In addition, we will publish
commentaries and opinion pieces, as well as reviews, so FEMS Microbes will be a journal to
look to for new ideas and perspectives across the microbial sciences.’’

FEMS Microbes is our new community journal for sharing research findings. In particular,
it is a venue for early career scientists to read, publish, and contribute. It includes research
articles, commentaries, reviews, as well as methodological advancements that are of
general interest to a wide audience. All microbes, including bacteria, archaea, fungi, protists,
parasites, and viruses are covered. The journal is fully gold open access and all articles are
free to read.
