Meet the Microbiologist

Meet the Microbiologist is a podcast that showcases the people behind the scientific discoveries. Each guest introduces their research in one of the cutting-edge areas of the microbial sciences: genomics, antibiotic resistance, synthetic biology, emerging infectious diseases, microbial ecology, public health, probiotics, and more! You no longer have to suffer in silence: learn about epidemiology as you run errands, explore drug discovery as you drive home, delve into microbial genomics at the gym. Each guest discusses their scientific discoveries and where future technologies may lead. Meet the Microbiologist, hosted by Julie Wolf, was previously titled Meet the Scientist, hosted by Merry Buckley and Carl Zimmer.

Biological sex and influenza with Sabra Klein - MTM73

Written by

How does biological sex influence influenza infection and vaccination?

Jennifer Martiny describes the incredible microbial biodiversity of natural ecosystems such as soils and waterways.

Peter Hotez talks about neglected tropical diseases: what are they, where are they found, and where did the term “neglected tropical disease” come from, anyway?

Stacey Schultz-Cherry explains the selection process to choose the influenza virus strains to include in the annual influenza vaccine.

Gigi Kwik Gronvall talks to MTM about the importance of biopreparedness. Gronvall discusses her work in creating policies around potential natural, accidental, and man-made pandemics.

Microbiomes everywhere with Jack Gilbert - MTM 68

Written by

Jack Gilbert talks about his studies on microbiomes of all sorts. He describes the origin of the Earth Microbiome Project, which has ambitions to characterize all microbial life on the planet, and talks more specifically about the built microbiome of manmade ecosystems such as hospitals. Gilbert explains how advances in scientific techniques have driven past microbiome-related discoveries and will continue to do so in the future.

Tara C. Smith discusses her work uncovering ties between agriculture and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

Raymond St. Leger describes his work on insect pathogenic fungi. Members of this diverse group of fungi can be found as part of the plant rhizosphere, where they provide nutrients to the plant, and can also be deployed as insect control agents. Raymond discusses his work with communities in Burkina Faso, where he works with officials to educate and gain consent for use of mosquito-killing fungi to control the spread of malaria.

Vincent Racaniello discusses how he ended up studying polio virus and the three eureka moments he’s experienced so far: uncovering the polio genome, discovering the polio receptor, and generating a mouse model of polio disease. Vincent discusses his interest in science communications, including his blog and active podcast network.
