Watch a panel of Zika virus experts who speak about the latest developments on Zika virus research and a wide range of fields that touch on flaviviruses.
Lynn Enquist, Ph. D. ASM President and Zika conference convener, Henry L. Hillman Professor in Molecular Biology and Professor in the Princeton Neuroscience Institute at Princeton University
The expert panel includes:
Kristen Bernard, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Virology, University of Wisconsin-Madison
Dr. Bernard’s research focuses on West Nile virus, related to Zika virus, and how these viruses cause disease, including interaction with mosquitoes.
Mehul Suthar, Ph. D. Assistant Professor, Emory Vaccine Center, Emory University
Mehul’s research focuses on understanding the interplay between host immune response and control of West Nile virus infection. He can speak to aspects of biology, pathogenesis, and immune responses to Zika virus.
Eva Harris, Ph. D. Professor, Division of Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology, Director, Center for Global Public Health, UC Berkeley
Dr. Harris has developed a multidisciplinary approach to study the molecular virology, pathogenesis, immunology and clinical aspects of mosquito borne viral diseases. The Harris Lab and her non-profit, the Sustainable Sciences Institute, are working very actively on in-country public health responses to Zika though sites in Nicaragua and Ecuador.
Charles Rice, Ph. D. Maurice R. and Corinne P. Greenberg Professor in Virology, Laboratory of Virology and Infectious Disease, Rockefeller University
Dr. Rice’s research focuses on mechanisms of viral replication and virus-host interaction, which can be applied to Zika virus. _________________________________________________________
