The discovery that host immune defenses could be primed, a process called immunization or vaccination, helped to eradicate smallpox. Immunization has changed the global impacts of infectious diseases. Messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines that have Emergency Use Authorization are one part of the toolkit for managing COVID-19. What is mRNA anyway? We will explore connections among mRNA, milkmaids and microbial pathogens.

We celebrate the James Robert Walker Lecture on this occasion.
