"Much Ado About Mumps: Using Genomics to Track Virus Outbreaks in Massachusetts & Beyond" by Shirlee Wohl
After decades of decline, mumps — once a ubiquitous childhood illness — is on the rise again. In this lecture, we’ll focus on the recent mumps outbreak right here in Massachusetts and learn about why mumps is back, why vaccinated people are getting sick, and how studying mumps can help us prepare for the next virus outbreak.
All Spring lectures are held in Pfizer Lecture Hall, which is located in Harvard University Mallinckrodt Chemistry Building. For directions, please visit:
