MOSAIC produce animated film with Steven Appleby and Pete Bishop

Mechanisms of Severe Acute Influenza Consortium (MOSAIC) was established in 2009 to find new treatments and approaches for future outbreaks.

Jointly funded by the Wellcome Trust and MRC; MOSAIC commissioned the renowned illustrator Steven Appleby and prolific animator Pete Bishop to create a short animation film for public engagement purposes.

We hope you find it educational, fun and most importantly, that it prompts you to think about the part you may play in future outbreaks which could result in a pandemic. Would you be a perfect host and potentially spread influenza, or are you immunised and therefore would stop it spreading?

Scientific input was given by Professor Peter Openshaw of the National Heart and Lung Institute and Dr Calum Semple of the University of Liverpool.
