* Eradicating emerging viruses
: Peter Kasson, associate professor of molecular physiology and of biomedical engineering at the University of Virginia, is studying emerging viruses
and guiding the development of new antiviral therapies.
The research laboratory will be functional from the beginning of next year and it is expected that it will benefit the healthcare providers to prepare to counter the newly emerging viruses
in the community.
"The data presented at IAS underscore our commitment to scientific discovery, building on Gilead's legacy of transformative advances in HIV therapies," said Diana Brainard, MD, Senior Vice President, HIV and Emerging Viruses
, Gilead Sciences.

Her research focuses on emerging viruses
Zika has been one of the most devastating new emerging viruses
epidemic due to its effects on the nervous system mostly newborns.
Three scenarios and simulation exercises have been done on the hypothesis of cases of emerging viruses
or outbreaks and pandemics and how to deal with them and to ensure participation and awareness and proper response of stakeholders and national focal points from all health sectors and specifically to ensure readiness for FIFA 2022.

"Prevention and management are hampered by suboptimal diagnostics, lack of treatment options for emerging viruses
, and a paucity of vaccines," the authors write.
A study conducted in Norwegian University of Science and Technology has reviewed all approved, investigational and experimental antiviral agents that have been shown to be safe in humans to search for new uses for these substances against existing and emerging viruses
Over the years, their work has shown that based on significant changes in emerging viruses
, vaccines should be reevaluated for effectiveness when important changes are detected.
