“I chose LSSU expecting a very good engineering education. What I didn’t expect was faculty with real-world engineering experience and abilities, labs with real-world equipment, projects with real-world outcomes, and an entire campus staff with real interest in my success, as a student and yet today. My LSSU engineering education has created or supported every desired career opportunity. LSSU was absolutely the right place for me.”

Description: In 1918, a flu pandemic ripped through the grobal population with such speed and virulence that by the end of the following year an estimated 40 million people would be dead--four times the number of victims eventually claimed by the First World War. The international medical community lacked the expertise to deal with the virus, which was mistakenly believed to be a bacterium, and found itself powerless to stop it from spreading. No one was prepapred for the end resule. Hospitals ran out of beds for their sick. Morgues spilled out onto the streets. And the war ensured that the cycle would continue. Troops from both sides of the conflict, dispatched back and forth across the globe, were serving as the unwitting carriers of a lethal disease. The carousel of death kept turning. Wehre did this particular flu strain come from? What made it so deadly? Eighty-five years later, American and British virologists are teaming up to hunt down the answers to those two critical questions. Their quest has been imbued with a sense of urgency; modern health experts are bracing themselves for the emergence of a flu strain similar to 1918's, with many suggesting a similar pandemic will occur within the next decade. If modern scientists can shed light on why the 1918 virus was so lethal, they could apply that information to the emergence the next pandemic stain. But will they solve the mystery in time?
