Immigrants Of The Week: Richard Webby, Ahmed Zewail, and Barbara Schaal

by Greg Siskind

IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: RICHARD WEBBY - FLU FIGHTER

Faculty-webby_richard-0703 As the swine flu maybe pandemic dominates the news and immigrants are being falsely blamed by demagogues on the airwaves, its nice to hear about an immigrant who is helping to save us all from this bug.

Dr. Richard Webby, a New Zealand native is right here in my home town of Memphis leading the team at the world renown St. Jude Children's Research Hospital working on the flu vaccine. St. Jude is one of five institutions across the world that the World Health Organization has tapped to help quickly develop a vaccine. Six years ago Webby led a team that quickly developed a vaccine for the bird flu which many feared would become a pandemic.
