Influenza continues to be one of the most common respiratory diseases in humans and represents a significant public health burden, due to its associated morbidity and mortality. Dr. Peter Palese and his colleagues at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York are spearheading a ground-breaking project that aims to design a novel influenza virus vaccine. This vaccine will overcome many of the limitations faced by available vaccination approaches and, ultimately, provide universal and long-lasting protection against seasonal and pandemic influenza.
