Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Columbia University, Vincent Racaniello, PhD joined me to look at a small portion of a huge through of viruses in the news on Sunday evening.

The latest Zika virus research, the Brazil yellow fever outbreak, the first ever known Seoul virus outbreak in the US and so much more.

We also talked about the number of podcasts and other media projects he’s been doing at Virology Blog, including a fascinating interview with Dr Jonna Mazet about emerging pathogen surveillance and public health.
