Dr. Matthew Memoli — A Better Shot Against the Flu

The annual flu vaccine is the best way to prevent yourself and others from getting sick.

This mismatch allows viruses to fly under the radar and spread undetected. It's a problem scientists hope to solve with a universal flu vaccine.

He has developed a new vaccine candidate that could offer broader protection from more flu strains and for more people.
