"Virology: Fighting for a cause"

I shot an assignment a couple weeks ago with the Associated Press for Nature. It was a profile of Dr. Judy Mikovits, PhD, Director of Research at the Whittemore Peterson Institute for Neuro-Immune Disease, for a feature in the March 17, 2011 issue. If you're interested in or affected by chronic fatigue, I'd recommend reading it. The article, written by Ewen Callaway, looks at Dr. Mikovits's research of the XMRV virus, the patients who believe in her work and the researchers that don't.
