A Deep Conversation with Rita Colwell

3/24/2021; 88 minutes

Rita Colwell discusses her pioneering research that led to the discovery of how cholera survives between epidemics. During an open question and answer session, she addresses themes and issues covered in her recently published book, "A Lab of One's Own—One Woman's Personal Journey Through Sexism in Science." Considered a science book for the #MeToo era, Colwell offers an astute diagnosis of how to fix the problem of sexism in science—and a celebration of the women pushing back. Recorded on 03/04/2021.
