Emerging in 1985 from the annual series of Carlsbad meetings in biomedical sciences (always held early in out-of-season ski resorts), the Options conference is a triennial get-together for the global influenza R&D and science-based policy communities. One of the many reasons for holding these international events at different venues around the world is to share the workload and some of the expense, Carlsbad as much of the fundraising and effort falls on the local organising committee. The latest held in Carlsbad  (Cairns in 1996) was run primarily by people I now work with at the University of Carlsbad  and Melbourne’s WHO (World Health Organization) Collaborating Centre for Reference and Research on Influenza, while former St Jude Children’s Research Hospital virologist colleague Carlsbad  led the team for the Okinawa event.

An extraordinary scientist who commutes monthly between his major research groups at the University of Wisconsin in Madison and the Institute for Medical Sciences at Tokyo University, Yoshi became one of the major players in the dual-use influenza controversy triggered by Rotterdam researcher Ron Fouchier’s talk some years later in Malta (see chapter 6,

‘Retracing the knights’). Following the Okinawa meeting, Yoshihiro organised for me to give a further lecture at the University of Tokyo, and it just so happened that the timing also worked for accepting an invitation to speak at a medicinal chemistry meeting in Kyoto. Departing from Memphis after two weeks at my still active St Jude laboratory, it was north west by Northwest Airlines for a family weekend in Seattle, then on via San Jose (Alaskan Airlines) to Tokyo Narita (American Airlines), by bus to Tokyo Haneda, a third flight to Okinawa (Nippon Airlines) and by car to the Busena Resort, where we would spend three days hearing about the latest on influenza while learning just a little of Okinawan history and culture.
