The result of all this research was the identification of a huge number of viruses affecting humans, the development of new techniques for the rapid identification of viruses, and a quantum leap in our understanding of arthropod-borne viruses.

Belém

'''Belém''' ( ) is a Brazilian municipality (Municipalities of Brazil), the capital and largest city of state of Pará in the country's north (North Region, Brazil). It is the gateway to the River Amazon with a busy port, airport, and bus coach station. Belém lies approximately 100 km upriver from the Atlantic Ocean, on the Pará River, which is part of the greater Amazon River system, separated from the larger part of the Amazon delta by ''Ilha de Marajó'' (Marajo Island (Marajó)). With an estimated population of 1,402,056 people — or 2,249,405, considering its metropolitan area — it is the 11th most populous city (List of largest cities in Brazil) in Brazil, as well as the 16th by economic relevance (Economy of Brazil). It is the second largest in the North Region (North Region, Brazil), second only to Manaus, in the state of Amazonas (Amazonas (Brazilian state)),

Founded in 1616 by the Kingdom of Portugal, Belém was the first European colony (Colonial Brazil) on the Amazon but did not become part of Brazil until 1775. The newer part of the city has modern buildings and skyscrapers. The colonial portion retains the charm of tree-filled squares, churches and traditional blue tiles. The city has a rich history and architecture from colonial times. Recently it witnessed a skyscraper boom.

Belém, literally ''Bethlehem'' is also known as the ''Metropolis of the Brazilian Amazon region'' or the ''Cidade das Mangueiras'' (City of Mango Trees) due to the vast number of those trees found in the city. Brazilians often refer to the city as Belém do Pará ("Belém of Pará") rather than just ''Belém'', a reference to an earlier name for the city, Santa Maria de Belém do Grão Pará, and also to differentiate it from a number of other towns called Belém in Brazil. It is named after Santa Maria de Belém (Santa Maria de Belém (Lisbon)) in Lisbon, also better known by its shortened name, Belém (Belém (Lisbon)).

Belém is served by two airports: Val de Cães International Airport, which connects the city with the rest of Brazil and other cities in South America, and Brig. Protásio de Oliveira Airport (Júlio César) Airport (Protásio de Oliveira Airport) dedicated to general aviation.

The city is also home to the Federal University of Pará.
