Flu is notorious for keeping us in bed for a few days every winter. Do you know that flu is responsible for up to half a million deaths worldwide every year? Let's discuss how these smart viruses infect us and how they multiply within our cells and escape vaccines and drugs. We will tell you a story about “flu polymerase”, a viral machine that hijacks the human cells to produce millions of copies of the virus? You will be impressed to know how these viruses can constantly come up with new strategies to trick us and how our scientific research helps us to keep up the game!
