Email from Prof of Microbiology


Just a quick response - did you watch CNN last night or this morning? There is concern that the first human to human case has happened in Indonesia!

I am going overseas on 12 June for about a month, so time is a bit tight. I will let you know next week how my program is looking. We can maybe arrange something then.

I am not working on an AI vaccine. I am working on a DNA vaccine for Beak and Feather disease virus in parrots which attacks the immune system of birds in a similar way that HIV attacks the human immune system.
They are, however, totally different viruses and not related to each other in any way.

See you.
