Asking questions

Speaking to the students

Bill Gates talks with UC Berkeley professor Dan Portnoy as he tours Portnoy's biology lab. Portnoy's research looks at the listeria bacteria and how the immune system interacts with it, a subject that has implications for vaccine creation.

The tour followed the morning speech that kicked off his three-day college speaking tour.
