Science Communications Specialist
Megan Meyer, PhD is the Science Communications Specialist at IFIC where she leads creative communications strategies focused on food production, food safety and nutrition.

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 the role of nutritional antioxidants on an individual’s immune response to influenza.

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-to’s), being outside as much as possible and cooking something tasty for her family and friends.
