swept the globe, claiming as many as 50 million lives worldwide. What made the virus so lethal? Are we facing the possibility of another such pandemic—perhaps sparked by the avian influenza strain H5N1?
Influenza viruses past and future are the topic
of this year’s Joseph J. Kinyoun Lecture to be given by NIAID senior investigator Dr. Jeffery K. Taubenberger.
