Until the Zika virus (ZV) outbreak in Brazil caught the global medical and public health communities by surprise in 2015, ZV was considered to be a benign pathogen for healthy humans. That outbreak, associated with a massive increase in babies born with neurological and other developmental defects, with similar increases in Guillain‑Barré syndrome in adults, spiralled into an epidemic affecting other parts of South and Central America, the Caribbean and the USA.

The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) has a long tradition of working with Canadian athletes to help them achieve their best in international competitive sports, including the Winter and Summer Olympics, and the Paralympics. For 50 years, NRC researchers have worked with athletes from many sports to help them test their equipment and optimize their aerodynamic positions so they are more efficient in their technique, thus making them go faster.
