"When we think about a virus we don't think as much about the immune response to the virus but it is just so, so critical." -David Fajgenbaum

Some of the most effective have been around for as much as 70 years. In this episode of EPIDEMIC, we’re going to hear how David Fajgenbaum's quest for a treatment for his rare disease is helping find effective treatments for COVID — and other diseases — in surprising places.
