Are We Prepared for the Next Pandemic Flu Virus? Is a New Universal Vaccine the Answer?

History shows that every 50 years there is a major flu pandemic and we are long overdue. Today with air travel and an expanded global population, a pandemic flu would be devastating. Medicine is responding to this pandemic challenge - which every public health official knows is a when, not an if - by working on a new type of vaccine called a universal flu vaccine. Universities, labs and companies around the world are racing to be there first.

Dr. J. Joseph Kim's infectious disease lab is searching for a vaccine that would prevent all strains of flu - a universal flu vaccine. Dr. Kim will discuss the potential for pandemics and how medicine is working with a sense of urgency to meet the next pandemic.
