Dr. Jessica Taaffe is a brilliant global health scientist and microbiologist who continues to break down barriers for Latina women in her field. "Not the Science Type" is a docuseries featuring four female scientists who are challenging stereotypes and confronting discrimination as they rise to prominence.

In fields ranging from biology and engineering, to science-based applications and innovations, these scientists challenge stereotypes and confront gender, racial and age discrimination along the way. While each has taken a different path to pursue scientific excellence, they are bound by the common experience of feeling excluded or “not the type” in traditionally homogenous scientific fields.
