Caption: US Public Health Service polio research meeting, 1953. Group meeting of scientists and managers at the US Public Health Service's Communicable Disease Center (CDC) in Montgomery, Alabama, USA. This research group had just discovered that the Brunhilde type of polio virus could be grown in mice. Polio, also known as poliomyelitis, is a childhood disease caused by a virus. Polio epidemics in the early 20th century left thousands paralysed. Vaccines were developed in the 1950s and 1960s. From left to right: Anna Hall, C. P. Li (chief of the Special Projects Unit), Auborn Hall, Morris Schaeffer (medical director in charge of the Virus and Rickettsia Laboratory), Johnnie Johnson and Ann Beasley. Photographed on 2 April 1953.
