#SciChat is a mini interview-series on the African counterparts of our IRD, CNRS or Cirad French scientists leading research in the region (Southern Africa, East Africa and the Indian Ocean). For this first video, we met with Wanda Markotter, virologist at the University of Pretoria.

Why study viruses carried by bats? What does a virologist do in the field? Why become a scientist?

Dr Wanda Markotter, a researcher at the University of Pretoria and a partner of IRD scientists in Zimbabwe, tells us all about her daily life in this first "SciChat"!
