Ebola News Archive

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