Spotlight on Science/Mademoiselle Scientists: Beyond the (Micro)Scope Podcast:

It’s been a long time since I have shared a Spotlight on Science or Mademoiselle Scientist post and I have to say I missed writing these posts. I haven’t listened to a science podcast in some time because I took a small break from podcasts. Not that long ago I was looking for a new science podcast and came across Beyond the (Micro)scope. Beyond the (Micro)scope is a podcast focusing on science, technology and business topics of women in science. I’m a huge advocate for women in STEM so this podcast was up my alley.

Spotlight on Science/Mademoiselle Scientists: Beyond the (Micro)Scope:

Beyond the (Micro)Scope was founded by Lindsay Claiborn and Dr. Mumu Xu. Claiborn is a multimedia journalist with a background in television reporting and digital producer at FOX Soccer. She is a Claremont McKenna College alum and has a Master’s in broadcast journalism from Northwestern University. Xu is an assistant professor in aerospace engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park and her research focuses on designing and controlling unmanned systems. She has a M.S. and Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from California Institute of Technology and her B.S. from Harvard University.

It’s great seeing women coming together with a passion for STEM. I’m always looking for new science podcasts and/or blogs to check out to learn more about research news, science outreach and different STEM-ers doing great things. If you have any suggestions leave a link in the comments section.

Spotlight on Science: This Week in Science (#TWIS)

In my last Spotlight on Science Post I talked about MySciCareer as a resource for scientists. Now, I’m back for another resource for scientists. The only podcasts I follow are This Week in Virology (TWIV) and This Week in Global Health (TWiGH). So when I heard about This Week in Science (TWIS) on twitter I had to check it out. I love learning about anything related to STEM. The cool thing about TWIS is that they talk about various topics in science and each episode is a chance to find out the latest things happening in science and technology.  Continue reading Spotlight on Science: This Week in Science (#TWIS)

Spotlight on Science: Global Health with Dr. Greg Martin #TWiGH

In my first Spotlight on Science post I talked about Dr. Vincent Racaniello. In January I talked about resources for scientists. If you have been following my blog for some time you know that I am a toxicologist I am exploring a vaccine research career. Dr. Racaniello and Coursera.org are great resources to check out.

After taking the course and listening to Dr. Racaniello’s #TWIV podcasts I came across Dr. Greg Martin’s YouTube Channel after following him on twitter. Since I have been subscribed to his YouTube Channel for some time now I wanted to spotlight Dr. Martin as my second Spotlight on Science. Dr. Martin is a medical doctor with an MPH and MBA, Editor in Chief of Globalization and Health, and has diverse experience in global health. He is the person to watch if you want to learn more about global health. Continue reading Spotlight on Science: Global Health with Dr. Greg Martin #TWiGH

In my 1st Blogiversary post I shared some of the things you can expect from Mademoiselle Scientist this year. September marks the beginning of Spotlight on Science. If you have been following my blog for some time now you may have checked out my other spotlight series: Mademoiselle Scientist Spotlight. If not check out my most recent blog post about Irène Joliot-Curie.

My goal for Spotlight on Science is to share science resources. For my first Spotlight on Science blog post I will spotlight 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 loved! Earlier this year I wrote a blog post about my experience using Coursera.org and taking his Virology Courses. I really enjoyed the course and now that the courses are over I like to tune into to his Podcasts and Blog. If you are interested in any aspects of virology you have to check out the links if you have not already. Since I’m interested in vaccine research, learning more about virology was right up my alley.
