Infectious diseases rank among the gravest threats to human health alongside global warming and terrorism. New strains continue to evolve every year and can spread rapidly. The consequences can be devastating. The 1918 Spanish flu killed an estimated 50 million people. Today HIV infects 34 million people and the recent Ebola outbreak has claimed more than 1,900 lives.Ê Rachel McKendry is Professor of Biomedical Nanotechnology at UCL.
