Grant could bring lifetime flu vaccine

Since 1984, a non-profit organization called TED, short for Technology, Entertainment and Design has helped spread groundbreaking ideas around the globe. A subsidiary of TED donated a lot of money to the University of Washington to stop the spread of disease. The 45 million dollar grant will go to UW's Institute of Protein Design and perhaps lead to the first lifetime flu vaccine. In Healthlink, KING 5's Amity Addrisi has more on what researchers hope to achieve.
