New Zika project to start
31 March 2016
Three University of Oxford teams are to begin research projects focussed on Zika after the UK government announced a series of grants to tackle the disease. Since its outbreak in Brazil last year, the Zika virus has continued to spread, primarily across the Americas. Dr George Warimwe, Jenner Institute, will study the transmission and case burden of Zika in an area of East Africa, providing vital information on how the disease spreads.
