Hosts: Vincent Racaniello, Philip Kranzusch, David Knipe, and Priscilla Yang
Vincent, Philip, David, and Priscilla recorded this episode before an audience at the Harvard Virology Program Annual Retreat, where they discussed negative strand RNA viruses, a vaccine against herpes simplex virus type 2, lipidomics of viral infection, and science communication.
The Keynote Speaker at the Harvard Virology retreat is usually an individual, but this year the honor went to TWiV as an example of science communication to the public. Many thanks to members of the Virology Program for a terrific retreat!

Can somebody tell me which viruses , bacterias, fungi, etc are similar in size to 12000 daltons? I need to know because IÂ´m afraid about taking the transfer factor, some friends that are Microbiologists told me that is a risk and another friend thar is a Chemistry told me the oposite so IÂ´m very confused, please help me, Im sure that here Ii can find some answers. Thanks.
I am interested in learning more about all related health. I want to be one of members of the Virology Program. By the way, could I join it? How could I join the member of this program?
