This summer’s outbreak of Ebola in West Africa is the deadliest in history. Spreading faster than the virus, though, is fear and misinformation.

On this episode of UW Medicine Pulse, we investigate the science behind this outbreak with UW Medicine physicians and researchers who are on the front lines of fighting infectious disease, including one of the only research teams in Washington State authorized to work with live Ebola virus in the lab.

Why is Ebola so frightening? What are the prospects for a vaccine? Is an outbreak in the U.S. possible? And why are these viral epidemics, it seems, occurring with ever greater frequency? We get answers to those questions and much more.
