Dr. Karina del Carmen Trujillo Murillo and Maria del Pilar Ramos Cervantes visited the Rockville, MD campus of the JCVI from Sept. 13-15, 2017. They are researchers from Mexico, associated with the La Red Network. La Red is a collaboration between the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and the Mexican Ministry of Health, created to conduct clinical research addressing emerging threats, increase scientific knowledge, and directly contribute to improved clinical management of infectious diseases of public health importance. La Red provided Zika virus samples from Mexico for sequencing, which was facilitated by Dr. John Beigel, who manages the La Red program at NIAID.
