Global Pandemics

Here's an interesting lecture from MIT World by Hidde Ploegh, PhD, Professor of Biology, MIT; Member, Whitehead Institute.

In his role as a biochemist, Hidde Ploegh explains the "essential features of the lifestyle of the flu virus" discussing not only how viruses work to invade our systems and cause the flu, but also adding insights into the political and societal framework in which public health groups and governments deal viral disease.
