Megan Meyer, PhD is the Director, Science Communications at the International Food Information Council (IFIC) where she leads communications strategies focused on food production, food safety and nutrition. In addition, Megan oversees the development and execution of creative campaigns focused on these issues. She has written for outlets such as HuffPost and Wired and has been interviewed in The Washington Post, NPR and USA Today.
Megan has a BS in Biology from Loyola University Maryland as well as a PhD in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her PhD research looked at how nutritional supplementation can enhance the immune response to influenza infections. Prior to working at IFIC, Megan worked at Spectrum Science, a science communications agency, managing projects for healthcare and pharmaceutical clients.
But she’s not always doing #scicomm work! In her spare time, Megan loves a good DIY project (kombucha and gardening are her current go-tos), being outside as much as possible and spending time with her family, friends and pup.
