ZikaPLAN | Zika and the nervous system: emerging lessons for emerging viruses
Wednesday 10 March, 2021at 14:00 - 17:00
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.
Including a series of new short films that highlight the people and the projects who made ZikaPLAN possible, this webinar gives you the chance to hear from and ask questions of researchers from across the world who have furthered the global health community’s understanding of infectious diseases such as Guillain-Barré syndrome and congenital Zika syndromes. Chaired by Tom Solomon, with speakers including Maria Lucia Brito, Sonja Leonhard, Fatima Militão, Hugh Willison, Celina Turchi, Julia Edgar and Suzannah Lant.
ZikaPLAN has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement number 734584 and works closely with two other European Union-funded consortia, ZIKAction and ZIKAlliance.
