TWiM

This Week in Microbiology

As a science Professor at Columbia University, Racaniello has spent his academic career directing a research laboratory focused on viruses. His enthusiasm for teaching inspired him to reach beyond the classroom using new media. TWiM is for everyone who wants to learn about the science of microbiology in a casual way.

While there are no exams or pop quizzes, TWiM does encourage interaction with the audience via comments on specific episodes (below), vial email and voicemail at 908-312-0760. Listeners can also use MicrobeWorld to suggest topics for the show by submitting articles or papers to the site and tagging them with "TWiM". Each week Racaniello will view the tagged content and select items for discussion.

TWiM co-hosts include Elio SchaechterMichael Schmidt, and Michele Swanson.
