Favorite microbe: I enjoy all microbes and choosing just one favorite feels like bad parenting. If I had to, it would be Treponema pallidum, because spirochetes are awesome and they can swim wherever they want. 
Why I chose Infectious Diseases: So many reasons. The difficulty I have in choosing a favorite microbe probably means I chose my specialty correctly. 
What I love about Washington University: Our program is great because we see cool cases with fun people and there is nothing better than that.
