at 9:00 AM

The U.S. government asked two leading scientific journals not to publish details of new research into the deadly bird flu.

Guests:

Bruce Alberts, editor-in-chief of Science (journal)

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

Michael Specter, staff writer for The New Yorker

Hank Greely, director of the Center for Law and the Biosciences
