About Julie Wolf


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.
