Episode 19: Microbiology in today’s industry

Wendy Schluchter, Ph.D. Professor and Chair from the University of New Orleans joins Traci on today’s podcast. During this podcast you will hear how Mardi Gras is being celebrated during this unusual time we are all experiencing, how it was celebrated this year and how it relates to Wendy’s New Orleans background.

Wendy had the opportunity to speak about the most common professional fields and industries that most students pursue after receiving their degrees in microbiology. She concludes her portion of the podcast by discussing how microbiology is multi-disciplined. Many microbiology students pursue medicine, and many of them, in preparation of becoming a doctor, will need to minor in technology or engineering to stand out or be competitive in their respective fields.
