The NGDI collected news items on Ebola from October 1, 2014 – October 30, 2015. To review these news items, visit our Ebola News Archive page. The start of the collating coincided with our decision to host an Ebola Conference featuring the Canadian collaborations in vaccines and therapeutics (see recording information below). NGDI is also hosting a Peter Wall International Roundtable in 2016 investigating the changes in regulatory practices in Ebola Clinical Trials and whether these changes can be reflected in other Neglected Disease research and development practices.

On November 13, 2014 UBC’s Neglected Global Diseases Initiative at UBC (NGDI-UBC) in partnership with the Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute and The Centre for Drug Research and Development (CDRD), Canada’s national not-for-profit drug development and commercialization centre, brought together leading researchers from across the country to discuss Ebola Treatment and Action. The meeting focused on Canada’s current contributions to potential therapeutics in response to the 2014 West African outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) and the opinions of Canadian Public Health officials and researchers for the prevention, and control of infection domestically.
