Science Movie Night: CONTAGION
CONTAGION follows the rapid progress of a lethal airborne virus that kills within days. As the fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. At the same time, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart.
Join us following the film for a discussion of the real-world risks of modern day plagues with Matthew Mulvey, Associate Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, Pathology Department, University of Utah.
Directed by Steven Soderbergh
