Kilbourn Concert Series Celebrates 'Eastman Evolution'
Cellist Steven Isserlis will be Julia Figueras' guest on Classical 91.5 FM
at noon today before his Kilbourn Concert Series recital tonight with
pianist Jeremy Denk. The 8 p.m. performance in Kilbourn Hall is part of
the Eastman School's Festival Week, a celebration marking the completion of the school’s expansion and theater renovation project.
Bacteria Seek to Topple Egg as Top Flu Vaccine Tool
Medical Center scientists have taken a step toward ending
the dominance of the egg in flu vaccine development. In a paper published in the Dec. 6 issue of
the journal Vaccine, scientists showed that an experimental flu vaccine
grown entirely in bacteria—a process that bypasses the egg completely—works well in people, triggering an immune response that would protect
them against the flu.
There's Still Time to Get Your Flu Shot
Non-clinical University staff can still receive a seasonal flu vaccine through Well-U's flu vaccine program, which. provides free flu shots to employees and their
spouses or domestic partners who are enrolled in University health care
plans (other forms of health insurance are also accepted for employees
not enrolled in a University plan). Stop by the Passport Health Office (1W321) in the School of Nursing, Helen Wood Hall, anytime between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. You must bring your insurance card
to get the vaccine.
