Microbes After Hours: Spillover: Zika, Ebola, & Beyond

Throughout the last few decades, diseases that spill over from animals to humans have been on the rise. What's behind their increase, and can we do anything to combat these dangerous foes? Spillover: Zika, Ebola & Beyond, from HHMI's Tangled Bank Studios, investigates the rise of spillover viruses like Zika, Ebola and Nipah. We find out how human behaviors spread diseases, and what science can do to anticipate and prevent epidemics around the world. Join us for the film and discussion with filmmakers Aileen O'Hearn and James Barrat!
