||Dr. Robert G. Webster, Director of the World Health Organization Collaborating Center for Studies on Ecology of Influenza in Animals and Birds, will present the Joseph J. Kinyoun Lecture. His talk will be "The Origin and Control of Pandemic Influenza Viruses."
This program is sponsored by Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, Director, NIAID.
The Kinyoun Lecture series was established by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in 1979 to honor Dr. Joseph J. Kinyoun who, in 1887, established the small Laboratory of Hygiene at the Marine Hospital on Staten Island, the predecessor of the National Institutes of Health. NIAID is the direct lineal descendent of the Laboratory of Hygiene within the NIH. These lectures will, for the most part, emphasize the interdependence of infection and immunity.
