Marietta Voge, née Mariette Jirku (1918–July 1984)[1] was a noted parasitologist, author and educator at the University of California, Berkeley.

Born in Yugoslavia, Voge received her Ph.D. in 1950 from UC Berkeley. She co-authored a textbook with Edward Markell on the subject of medical parasitology, now in its ninth edition as Markell and Voge's Medical Parasitology (ISBN 978-0721647937). At the time of its first publication in 1958, Voge was an assistant professor at the UCLA School of Medicine.[2] Voge served in 1976 as president of the American Society of Parasitologists.[3]

Voge was married to Noel Voge and was the daughter of Augustina Stridsberg, who worked for Soviet intelligence during World War II,[4] and Voge worked for the KGB San Francisco office according to the Venona project reports.[5][disputed ]
