Episode 42: Against the Tide—A dialogue with Rita Colwell about shifting paradigms
Behind every scientific achievement lies a complex journey, marked by trials, discoveries, and steadfast resolve. The career of distinguished University Professor Rita Colwell (@rcolwell2), of the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University, typifies the ups and downs of a great scientific journey: it began when very few women conducted research, and led her to become a world authority on cholera and director of the National Science Foundation. In this episode of Naturally Speaking Shorts, Taya Forde (@TayaForde) and Karen Hotopp (@KarenHotopp) catch up with her to talk about the impact of her work on water quality and the changing opportunities for women in science.
