UW research team learns from Ebola in Sierra Leone

Sierra_Leone_2University of Wisconsin-Madison News features the work of a UW Ebola research team in Sierra Leone.

Yoshihiro Kawaoka, pathobiological sciences professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine, began studying Ebola in 1995 and arrived in Sierra Leone with his research team in December 2014.

The researchers will look at the genetic and molecular signatures within blood samples, comparing blood from patients who survived Ebola to blood from those who did not, and to those who never got sick at all.
