2014 has witnessed the largest Ebola outbreak on record. In response, many individuals are concerned about their own health and the health and safety of their loved ones. In response to this record-breaking outbreak, Science and Science Translational Medicine have compiled over a decade's worth of material (including much of their published news and research) in order to assist with the dissemination of information to the public.
Researchers and the general public can now view this special collection for free.
According to the American Association for the Advancement of the Sciences, some of the most notable offerings include Martin Enserink's recent coverage of the debate over bringing promising but unapproved drugs to Africa, and a story by Gretchen Vogel that asks whether bats were involved in the spread of the disease across Sub-Saharan Africa, and several of the original research articles that report progress using monoclonal antibodies and other therapies to treat Ebola in macaque monkeys and rodents.
The collection consists of more than 20 articles spanning the period from 2000 to 2014.
