Katia presents some of her and her group’s recent work on influenza antigenic evolution at UPenn (thanks for the invitation, Erol!), at UNC (Ecology seminar), and at Princeton (EEB) this Fall! She was also fortunate to take part in a Virology-in-progress mini-symposium on ebola that Ron Swanstrom at UNC organized. Her talk focused on insights […]
