Who are the top ten influential women microbiologists?

The New Scientist just published an article about the 10 most inspirational women scientists of all time. Not one is identified as microbiologist or bacteriologist (if you're thinking historically - although Rosalind Franklin did work on viruses). I'm curious if folks reading this wouldn't mind listing which women microbiologists should be on this list and why. Please add your picks in the comments.

By the way, here's the New Scientist's top ten (in brief - please read their article for all the details.)

Marie Curie
Rosalind Franklin (she may qualify for her work on DNA and viruses)
Hypatia of Alexandria
Jocelyn Bell Burnell
Ada, Countess Lovelace
Lise Meitner
Dorothy Hodgkin
Sophie Germain
Rachel Carson
Jane Goodall

  1. OK, I am going to throw out Elizabeth Hazen who discovered the the world’s first useful fungus-killing antibiotic known as Nystatin. The FDA approved its use in 1954. Nystatin royalties totaled $13.4 million before the patent expired in 1974. Hazen who worked with Rachel Brown on its development donated half of the proceeds to a non-profit group that subsidized scholarly research. The other half went to an educational program called the Brown-Hazen Fund which supported medicine and biology research for female scientists.
