Genetic Warfare: Barriers to Infection & How Viruses Break Through

At the May Eastside Science Café, join the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center's Greg Brennan, D.V.M., Ph.D., to discover how this conflict has led to some of the most serious epidemics in modern times, and what we're learning to try to control them.
