Sandia Honored for Fighting Ebola, Analyzing Emerging Biotechnologies

Sandia National Laboratories

Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories just received recognition from the Secretary of Energy for their work to mitigate the effects of the 2014 Ebola epidemic. Reducing the amount of time Liberians who suspected they had Ebola spent waiting in large, open waiting rooms called Ebola treatment units was critical to controlling the outbreak. Sandia modeled and analyzed the West Africa nation’s blood sample transport system from the treatment units to diagnostic labs and made recommendations to improve turnaround time.

The "Geneva Signature" Measures the Safety and Efficiency of a Vaccine Against Ebola Virus Disease

Université de Genève (University of Geneva)

The 2014–2015 Ebola epidemic affected several countries in West Africa, leading to the death of more than 11'000 people. Although this epidemic of Ebolavirus disease is over, there is no knowing if, when or where another may strike. It is therefore more important than ever to find a reliable vaccine against this deadly disease. Research on vaccines, which was ongoing during the epidemic in West Africa, is now yielding promising results.
