Cedars-Sinai will play a critical role in bolstering the nation’s front-line defense against Ebola and other highly infectious diseases under a federal grant meant to improve the response to emerging medical threats. The medical center and the California Department of Public Health will share a $3.25-million grant from the federal agency through fiscal year 2019 to strengthen the delivery of specialized emergency medical care.

A model that predicts outbreaks of zoonotic diseases -- those originating in livestock or wildlife such as Ebola and Zika -- based on changes in climate, population growth and land use has been developed by a UCL-led team of researchers.

Sexual Transmission of Ebola Likely to Impact Course of Outbreaks

Sexual transmission of the Ebola virus could have a major impact on the dynamics of the disease, potentially reigniting an outbreak that has been contained by public health interventions, according to research by University of Georgia ecologists just published in the Royal Society journal Biology Letters.

Fighting Ebola with 21st Century Biotech

Currently, production of vaccines and diagnostic systems for infectious diseases have failed to provide a systematic vision that merges state-of-the-art technologies with industry to provide an effective commercial solution. Infectious and rapidly transmitted diseases, such as Ebola and influenza, should be a focus of interest for these prospects.

Ebola May Lead to Blindness in Survivors According to New Findings

A new study has shown that Ebola survivors may be at risk of severe vision loss or blindness weeks after being declared virus-free. The research is being presented at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) this week in Seattle, Wash.

Ebola Virus Genome Provides Clues to Repeated Disease 'Flare-Ups' in Western Africa

Ebola virus samples taken from patients in Liberia in June 2015 are strikingly similar in their genetic makeup to other Ebola virus sequences from Western Africa, according to research published online today in the journal Science Advances. The study sheds light on several aspects of the "flare-ups" that have occurred in Liberia since the country was initially declared free of Ebola virus disease.
