EDIT Thanks to everyone who joined in! We're all finished up here now, but our ZIKA research at the University of Glasgow will continue.
My short bio: I am Dr Alain Kohl, the programme leader of the Kohl Group at the MRC UofG Centre for Virus Research, which is currently conducting research into the spread of the Zika virus. The group, which also includes Dr Claire Donald (joining me today), has secured a number of pieces of Zika funding, including several recent awards from the Medical Research Council. Members of the group frequently travel to Brazil to work with colleagues there to better understand and combat the virus. I have also appeared in the media as a Zika expert, including on BBC Radio and on ITV News.
