Genetic Warfare: Barriers to Infection and How Viruses Break Through
Greg Brennan, D.V.M., Ph.D., Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
Viruses and animals have been engaged in an evolutionary arms race for millions of years, evolving and counter-evolving in an attempt to get a leg up. At the July Tacoma 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 how we're learning to try to control them. Download the PDF flyer.

Tacoma Science Café is held on the second Tuesday of each month. Did you miss a café and want to hear the discussion? Most Science Cafés are recorded by KCTS 9 and are available for online viewing. Tacoma Science Cafés take place at The Swiss Pub and are presented in partnership with Pacific Science Center and KCTS 9.
