Event description

Description

Come join us for a screening of the 2011 blockbuster Contagion and stay for a Q&A with some of Melbourne’s leading researchers in virology and immunology.

In the film, what appears to be a harmless cough turns into a lethal infection. A global pandemic explodes over a mysterious virus and the hunt for a vaccine begins in a race against the clock...

But how close is what we see at the movies to reality?

What happens when a virus… goes viral?

Meet the Melbourne scientists that work to keep potential outbreaks at bay. Enjoy the film and stay for a Q&A that will give you behind-the-scenes insight into the science of pandemics. Have your questions ready!


Our expert panellists are:

Dr Michelle Baker – leading bat immunologist at the Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL), CSIRO

Dr Julian Druce – senior medical scientist in the Virus Identification Laboratory of the Victorian Infectious Disease Reference Laboratory (VIDRL)

Mr Vincent Chung Director of Manufacturing Influenza Vaccine at Seqirus, a CSL company
