On the road again!

Off to the Royal Society meeting on "Tackling emerging fungal threats"

I am excited to attend the Royal Society meeting on "Tackling emerging fungal threats to animal health, food security and ecosystem resilience". The program is outstanding and I am looking forward to meeting a lot of you there. Do come and say hello. Some of the work we have in press will be presented; it'll be nice to see our brand new journal mentioned in a slide for the first time!

I will also attend the satellite meeting at Chicheley Hall on 9-10 March.

Follow our Twitter feed for some live coverage of both events.

Nonia Pariente

Chief Editor, Nature Microbiology

I come from a mid-sized city on the northwestern coast of Spain. My interest in science initially took me to Madrid, where I finished university and received a PhD in molecular biology. In Madrid, I studied RNA virus evolution and new antiviral strategies with Esteban Domingo. I then moved to UCLA, where I focused on developing lentiviral vectors for gene therapy in Irvin Chen’s laboratory. In 2007, I made the plunge from bench to desk and joined the EMBO Reports editorial team as Reviews Editor, becoming Scientific Editor two years later and Senior Editor in 2012. At EMBO Reports, I was responsible for microbiology and immunology, among other areas, and spent many years expanding my understanding and love for all things microbial. In the summer of 2015, I joined the Nature Microbiology editorial launch team, handling all things related to virology and mycology (and for a brief while parasitology) and -after a couple of stints covering microbiology at Nature- I became the Chief Editor of Nature Microbiology in 2019. I look forward to interacting with the community and providing a venue to publish the most important advances in the field.
