The battle against influenza

How we are enhancing preparedness for future outbreaks and should we be concerned?

Prof Peter Openshaw is the Director of the Centre for Respiratory Infection (CRI) at the National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London. He is also Professor of Experimental Medicine and an Honorary Physician in the Department of Respiratory Medicine at the St Mary's Campus of the Imperial College NHS Trust.

... as they take us on a journey through science and the things that made them fall in love with Physics.

Each of the students work at the cutting edge of quantum physics and they hope to bring you into this world, inspiring you to follow in their footsteps.

Professor Alan Heavens will explain how the Imperial Centre for Inference and Cosmology, ICIC, is going about answering fundamental questions about the universe.

His research is on the immunology of the lung, viral lung disease, vaccination and immunopathogenesis of viral disease. He was among the first 100 elected Fellows of the Academy of Medical Sciences, has served on Wellcome Trust's Clinical Interest Group, Infection and Immunity and the Tropical and Clinical Panels, and the Immunology and Infectious Diseases panel.

In 2009 Peter was invited by the Department of Health to become a member of the Scientific Advisory Group in Emergencies (SAGE), chaired by the Chief Government Scientist, which advised the UK Government on pandemic influenza.
