Abstract:

Michele Swanson credits Title IX for providing her the opportunity for a university education, during which she began the scientific training that has led to her current position as president-elect of the American Society for Microbiology. Michele’s story is inspirational, for she has charted a unique, rewarding, and balanced path. Michele has contributed in many significant ways to the field of microbiology, recognized and seized opportunities, and done so by making wise professional and personal choices. This chapter, by Brian Hammer, is a reflection on his Ph.D. mentor during her early career as an assistant professor, looking at her scientific influences prior to and her accomplishments since that time.
