Place Online

To mark the culmination of almost five years of transnational efforts to combat Zika virus, we are hosting a series of open access public webinars featuring some of the key participants in this global health study. We welcome you to join us and discuss what our findings mean both in terms of the lessons learned from the 2015-2016 epidemic, and in the current context of global public health concerns.

Hear from some of our leading researchers as they reflect on the multidisciplinary scientific response to the Zika outbreak. Divided into three parts, this webinar will provide expert insights into how we responded in the immediate aftermath of the Zika outbreak; what our investigations revealed about virus biology and mosquito genetics; and how our team approached modelling analysis.
Hosted by Scientific Coordinator Annelies Wilder Smith and Social Science Network Coordinator Gustavo Matta, with speakers Elizabeth Brickley, Maria Elisabeth Lopes Moreira, Ricardo Arraes de Alencar Ximenes, Demócrito de Barros Miranda-Filho, Louis Lambrechts, Daniela Weiskopf, Suzanne Kaptein, James Logan and Kathleen O’Reilly.
