Dr. J. Joseph Kim, President and CEO, Inovio Pharmaceuticals, spoke to Town Hall Los Angeles on Tuesday, September 24, 2013. His speech, "Are We Prepared for the Next Pandemic Flu Virus? Is a New Universal Vaccine the Answer?" explained that the next flu pandemic is a matter of when, not if. The current flu vaccines protect us against only 3-4 virus strains out of potentially several hundred, but the universal vaccine that Inovio is currently developing provides some hope in the near term.
