In this interview we speak to Leah Blondeau about her research into the pathogens that can be passed from companion animals to humans, recently presented in a poster at the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infection Disease.

Despite long-term antiretroviral therapy, cerebrospinal HIV reservoirs have been identified in individuals living with the virus and linked with a higher rate of cognitive defects.
In this interview we speak to Daniella Lefteri about her research on modulating arbovirus infection by targeting mosquito saliva, and what avenues this could present for new antiviral treatments.
A new study using CRISPR-Cas9 and long-acting slow-effective release antiretroviral therapy has reported the elimination of replication-competent HIV-1 DNA from the genomes of living animals for the first time.
New research investigating possible interactions between Epstein–Barr virus and neurological diseases has successfully infected neuronal-like cells in vitro, with the hope to use these as a model for studying this virus in the future.
Researchers from the Japanese National Institute of Infectious Disease have identified the American subtype of Zika as the most virulent for each of the contributing characteristics tested, when compared with Pacific and Southeast Asian subtypes.
In this interview we speak with Sarah Earle from the University of Oxford (UK) about her use of GWAS to understand more about Neisseria meningitidis and its transition from an asymptomatic commensal to an invasive pathogen.
We spoke to Sally Roberts (University of Birmingham, UK) at the recent Microbiology Society Conference (8–11 April, Belfast, UK) about her lab’s models for studying HPV and the virus–host interactions that have been uncovered as a result of this.
