Prevention is Protection

More years ago than I want to admit, I remember my professors in college talking about “The Global Economy” and “The Global Society.”  

While there would still be individual countries, we learned that goods and services would be traded globally. The economy would be intertwined worldwide. People would travel extensively. The possibilities for wealth, understanding, and education would be amazing. 

The world would, in a matter of speaking, become a lot smaller.

Chikungunya and dengue fever are two mosquito-carried viruses that threaten almost three billion people worldwide. Both illnesses cause serious flu-like symptoms, and dengue fever can be fatal. A Raleigh biotech start-up is using technology from NC State in its race to create a vaccine to stop the spread of the viruses.
