IGOS and IGOS-Zika projects aim to standardize the ongoing global research on GBS by creating a large network of collaborating centers that all use same (or similar) protocols. IGOS encompasses 21 countries and 154 centers. IGOS-Zika expands this network to include Brazil (5 centers), Argentina (3 centers) and Malaysia (1 center), along with collaborating sites in South America and Asia using similar protocols.

We are currently working on growing the IGOS-Zika network to countries including Cuba and Peru and welcome new collaborations.
