University of Liverpool joins fight against Zika
The University of Liverpool is collaborating with 25 leading research and public health organisations in the fight against Zika virus.
As part of the ZikaPLAN consortium, the University will work on improving the diagnosis of Zika, better understanding the neurological complications, and working towards vaccines and treatments.
Other organisations in the consortium will explore non-vector and vector transmission and risk factors for geographic spread. They will also measure the burden of disease and investigate how the virus has evolved.
