During the 2014 Gaithersburg Science Fair, we hosted Vincent Racaniello, Ph.D., a Professor of Microbiology and Immunology in the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University. Dr. Racaniello has been studying viruses for over 30 years and has always been interested in teaching others about viruses. His passion for teaching extends to his podcast, "This Week in Virology," aka TWiV. Dr. Racaniello recorded episode #292 of TWiV at MedImmune, making this the first TWiV episode in almost 300 recorded with industry. He spoke with four MedImmune scientists - Wade Blair, Matt Dickson, Nicole Kallewaard-Lelay, and Ken Miller about why they work in industry and their roles at MedImmune.
The episode, MedImmune Goes Viral, gives an in-depth look at MedImmune research and development, underscoring employees genuine passion for the science. It’s a great segment that helps demonstrate the great science that takes place here, as well as the talent we have at MedImmune.
