In my 1st Blogiversary post I shared some of the things you can expect from Mademoiselle Scientist. Just like I have my Mademoiselle Scientist Spotlight posts I decided to start September with a new series, called Spotlight on Science. This series will feature scientists, programs, podcasts and any other resources that supports scientists.
For my first Spotlight on Science blog post I am featuring Dr. Vincent Racaniello. Dr. Racaniello is a Professor of Microbiology & Immunology in the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University. He has a YouTube Channel, Blog and is the host of a Science Podcast, called This Week in Virology (TWiV). Not to mention he offered two courses in virology on Cousera.org that I took and enjoyed. Since his courses are over I tune into his podcasts and blog. Dr. Racaniello has a way of explaining virology that makes it easier to understand, engaging and fun. He is not only a virologist, but a great science communicator. If you are interested in virology you should check out his website.
If you want to learn more about virology and Dr. Racaniello follow him on social media: blog, podcast, YouTube and Twitter. On Tuesday, August 26, 2014 This Week in Virology (TWiV) celebrated its 300th Episode! Congrats to Dr. Vincent Ranciello and the entire TWiV team! I’m looking forward to the next TWiV episode.
