Viral Threats to Humankind: Antivirals and Lessons Learned from Interferons

12/11/2017; 56 minutes

Before we learned to make antimicrobial medicines and vaccines, before we had disinfectants and chemotherapies, we had interferons to thank for protection from viral infections. UC Santa Barbara Distinguished Professor Charles Samuel, an internationally recognized pioneer and leader in the study of interferons, explores why they remain a critical and significant field of research, especially in an age of powerful and constantly evolving viruses that spread rapidly.
