New Research on Zika's Role in Guillain-Barre
Dr. Carlos A. Pardo-Villamizar and other researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine working with scientists in Colombia have discovered what they believe is the strongest evidence yet that the Zika virus causes neurological problems in adults. Watch the video from the Baltimore Sun.

Dr Pardo’s interest in transverse myelitis centers on management of acute myelitis, biomarkers of the disease in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and blood, and the role of neuroimmune factors in the pathogenesis of myelopathies.
