Dr. Robert Gallo has been getting to know viruses-- their targets and their weaknesses--for decades, even before he co-discovered the virus that causes AIDS in the 1980s. At the University of Maryland’s Institute for Human Virology, which he heads, Gallo is looking at the coronavirus; he joins us to share his thoughts. For more information about the Institute for Human Virology, visit this link. Gallo is also co-founder and international scientific advisor at the Global Virus Network. More information about GVN here.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
