    Prof VRR- You mentioned you are going to UNC Chapel Hill.
    When is that? Seems like you had a number of professors on TWIV from UNC lately- first Dr. Blossom Damania and now Dr. Ralph Baric from UNC. Any more planned for the future?

    • Dr. Damania is arranging a visit to UNC Chapel Hill next semester. I’ll do a TWiV there with even more virologists! No date set yet.
