Viruses!

Ebola, MERS, H1N1 Flu: have you ever wondered where these frightening viruses come from? On November 15, the Kentucky Science Center’s own virologist, Alison Hill, will discuss how viruses can “jump” into humans from other species. In particular, she’ll discuss research elucidating the origins of HIV-1, arguably the deadliest cross-species transmission known to humankind, and how researchers are currently trying to study this complex phenomenon to prevent future outbreaks.
