Count Alfred de Baillet Latour established the “Fonds Interbrew-Bail- let Latour” in 1974, and since 1977 the Foundation has awarded the prize to encourage and reward out- standing scientists for research related to human health. Each year, a specific area of health is chosen and thus highlighted. For 2002, the focus was on Influenza. Dr. Krug’s eminence has come from his funda- mental contributions to the understanding of the mo- lecular mechanisms that regulate the replication and transcription of Influenza viruses, the th agents responsible for three major pandemics in the 20 century.
