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.
