"Preventing a Pandemic Flu"

I am presently sitting in the "Preventing a Pandemic Flu" working group at the National Academy of Sciences/Keck Futures Intiative.  These discussions are embargoed for the time being, so I can't relate them here, but we are coming up with an interesting strategy that fills significant holes in the present US Gov't plan.  My greatest fear is that President Bush's announcement has sucked all the air out of the room for other options.  But perhaps we will attract sufficient attention to get some money spent.

We'll see.
