Title: What do lollipops and influenza have in common?

Abstract

Human drug trials have begun to test a new way to treat influenza that has the potential to create a universal vaccine. The powerful x-ray beams from the Advanced Light Source at Argonne National Laboratory outside of Chicago enabled scientists to see the structure of the influenza virus clear enough to discover a key commonality among influenza strains. Scientist Damien Ekiert, who won a 2012 award for his work in this discovery, explains why drug manufacturers could capitalize on this.
