      No. I am a chemist not a biological engineer. There is also nothing to fear outside north Africa and aid is currently needed more than research to stop the spread of this contagion.

      No I am not either, I work with enzymes and not really with viruses and vaccines production. I agree with George, there is no risk here thankfully and very likely a cure will be found soon!

      Hi 429 –

      I’m not doing anything to cure ebola – that would be medicinal chemists (making vaccines) and pharmacologists work.

      Unfortunately No. I am a material chemist and I do not work in biological or biochemical research area.
