An Update on the Zika Virus - Recorded Webinar Available to Members Only

In 2016, scientists confirmed that Zika virus was a cause of microcephaly and other serious brain anomalies. Since that time, much work has been done to better understand the level of risk and the full spectrum of effects associated with this new teratogen. 

A scientific symposium, titled “An Update on the Zika Virus”, was convened on June 28, 2017 at the joint annual meetings of the Teratology Society and Developmental Neurotoxicology Society in Denver, Colorado. The symposium provided an update on the Zika epidemic and its effects, including information on the risks associated with Zika infection during pregnancy, neurobehavioral effects of prenatal Zika infection, and efforts to develop treatment strategies.

A live webcast of this symposium was funded by the Teratology Society, Developmental Neurotoxicology Society, and Organization of Teratology Information Specialists and was made available to members of these organizations, as a benefit of membership. A recording is available here for members only. If you would like to arrange a limited showing of the recorded webcast within your organization, please contact Heather Carskaddan (

The recorded webcast is 2 hours, 24 minutes long. Viewers are encouraged to watch the entire session, including the panel discussion. For a detailed agenda and link to the recorded session, click HERE (member login required).
