Sunday 24 March marks World Tuberculosis Day. On this day in 1882, Robert Koch announced he had discovered the causative agent of tuberculosis (TB), which was a major development in understanding the disease and working towards finding treatment options. In this post, we discuss TB research with Professor Tanya Parrish, Editor-in-Chief of the Society's flagship journal, Microbiology, and Head of the TB Discovery Research Group at the Infectious Disease Research Institute (IDRI) in the US.

Access Microbiology is the newest journal from the Microbiology Society. This unique, fully open access publication covers the full spectrum of microbial life, and all approaches to the science of microbiology. One of the aspects of Access Microbiology that makes it unique is the editorial board; early career researchers who want to develop editorial skills are paired with experienced editors who they can go to for queries and advice on editorial matters. We asked mentee Dr Helina Marshall and mentor Professor Jeff Cole about their respective roles and experiences so far.
