This Week in Virology (TWiV), a popular podcast highlighting issues and developments in virology, featured a conversation with Dr. Peter Palese, Chair of the Department of Microbiology of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (CRIP). TWiV is hosted by Dr. Vincent Racaniello, a science professor at Columbia University Medical Center. The two share an important connection—Dr. Racaniello was Dr. Palese’s first PhD student. They discuss Dr. Palese’s long career, including how he got into the influenza field, early work on neuraminidases, and universal influenza vaccines, sharing many personal experiences and stories along the way.
