Wednesday in Pfizer Hall, Mallinckrodt Chemistry Labs from 7 to 9:00 p.m. Please see the directions here on how to access Pfizer Hall, located at 12 Oxford Street, Cambridge.

After decades of decline, mumps — once a ubiquitous childhood illness — is on the rise again. In this lecture, we’ll focus on the recent mumps outbreak right here in Massachusetts and learn about why mumps is back, why vaccinated people are getting sick, and how studying mumps can help us prepare for the next virus outbreak.
