USAMRIID - Ebola Virus-like Particles (VLPs)

Ebola VLP 1433189586
At the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), Ebola virus-like particles (VLPs) with expression of viral glycoproteins (colorized TEM, negative stain) are being evaluated for their potential use as a vaccine for filoviruses such as Ebola. USAMRIID research leads to medical solutions—therapeutics, vaccines, diagnostics, and information—that benefit both military personnel and civilians. (PhotobyJason Shoemaker and Kathy Kuehl)
