NCTalks at SfN2016: Updates on Zika virus – an interview with Erica McGrath

One of the key research themes to come out of SfN 2016 (San Diego, CA, USA, 11–16 November 2016) is Zika virus, an issue that has become a global health concern in recent months. Here at the conference, we sat down with Erica McGrath, University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston (TX, USA), to discuss her group’s research on varying susceptibility to the neurological symptoms observed in infected populations. We also discuss her highlights of the conference and where she believes the field of Zika research will be heading in the coming years.
