The Microbiology Society is pleased to open the call for submissions to its new collection, ‘Diversity in Microbiology’.

The Society President, Professor Gurdyal Besra, has commissioned a number of articles from under-represented groups, highlighting the talent we have within our Society, and where our members are producing cutting-edge research within microbiology. This collection is open for submissions across our portfolio from members of historically marginalised groups.

Authors wishing to submit to the collection should do so via the online submission system and note in the cover letter that their submission is intended for the ‘Diversity in Microbiology’ collection. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected]

Greater diversity within all that we do will widen the talent pool available for the field of microbiology and create networks of ideas and collaborations, potentially leading to greater development and innovation. Working to be inclusive helps us ensure we have a thriving community, which in turn will pave the way for us to support microbiology into the future.
