Microbiology Today article on This Week in Virology at the Society for General Microbiology (UK) meeting in Dublin

The Society for General Microbiology (UK) publication Microbiology Today has a two page feature by Paul Duprex, Ph.D., Boston University, on Vincent Racaniello, Ph.D., Columbia University, and his popular podcast This Week in Virology. The article discusses Racaniello's use of new media to spread the science of virology to a worlwide audience.

"The beauty of a TWiV netcast is that it is far from only the preserve of those fortunate enough to be involved in science professionally. Rather, it engages a wider audience and helps to explain that what is achieved at the virological bench impacts society as a whole. This, in turn enhances engagement in, and appreciation of, our science by the individuals whose taxes fund the work we do."
