Eminent research on flu antigens took Robert Daniels back to USA

Intellectual freedom and the opportunity to start his own research group once lured Robert Daniels to the Chemistry Section at Stockholm University. After nine years of eminent academic research at the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, he landed a prestigious job in the US. Still, his focus is the same: to apply basic membrane protein folding principles to modernize and improve the antigens in seasonal influenza vaccines.
