The Ebola virus is one of the deadliest on the planet and the current outbreak is the worst the world has seen since the virus surfaced in the late 1970s. So what is UTMB Professor Thomas Geisbert doing with the virus in his Galveston lab? "We're really trying to improve the vaccines, improve the treatments and really kind of support the efforts in that manner," said Geisbert of the school's Department of Microbiology and Immunology. His efforts to create an effective vaccine are funded by a $26 million NIH grant. "We are the only academic university in the country right now that works with Biosafety Level 4 pathogens," Geisbert said. Security at the hospital is off the charts. "It's kinda like a box within a box within a box," he said. Even though Ebola is deadly, it's also fragile. Disinfectants, soaps and detergents kill it. Presently in a UTMB lab, a Texas doctor and his team are hoping to eliminate it from the Earth.
