Revealing more about microbiologists, the work they do, and what makes them tick. We ask them what they're up to now and what's next? How is the science moving forward to solve some of the intractable problems of our times? What keeps them going in a tough, competitive field? What do they see for the future of research, education, and training? We hope to show you a glimpse of what scientists are really like and what's going on in cutting-edge research today.
