Abstract:

Much as technology leaps forward during times of war, the Ebola outbreak that began in 2014 is forcing medical science to evolve as quickly as the virus it's fighting. This horror is provoking a revolution that may give birth to a world virtually free of pathogens ... and we are watching this seismic shift as it happens. Scientists and medical practitioners working at the front lines of disease prevention and control are finding breakthrough ways to fight pandemic viruses, from antibiotics and vaccines to computer programs that predict how viruses spread. These life-saving tools, battle-tested in the current crisis, will be used to fight a wide range of killer viruses in the near future.
