Influenza virus infections lead to significant illness, mortality, and social disruption worldwide. Herein, the first studies establishing the zebrafish as a model for human influenza infection are presented and it is shown that influenza infection proceeds and can be resolved through similar mechanisms in zebrafish and humans (Gabor, et al.). Our laboratory has previously characterized a fish rhabdovirus infection model in the zebrafish (Phelan, et al.).
