Virus hunter Nathan Wolfe is outwitting the next pandemic by staying two steps ahead: discovering new, deadly viruses where they first emerge — passing from animals to humans among poor subsistence hunters in Africa — before they claim millions of lives. (Recorded at TED2009, February 2009, in Long Beach, California. Duration: 12:20.)
