Excited to kickoff Prometheus, our project to develop antibody drugs vs. tick- and rodent-borne emerging viruses that sicken people across the globe. Even sweeter: working with @LarryZeitlin, @ZABornholdt, @McLellan_Lab, @stevenbradfute, and others. @NIH. http://bit.ly/2CRM3OS
In a study published online June 11 in @eLife Leah Guthrie, Ph.D., Sarah Wolfson, Ph.D., and Libusha Kelly, Ph.D., organized 10,000 compounds (found in foods, drugs, or produced by the human body) based on their structure. http://bit.ly/31nQ08N #science #scicomm #phdlife
Following the spread of #Ebola to #Uganda from #DRC, I am reconvening the IHR Emergency Committee on 14 June in Geneva to ascertain whether the outbreak constitutes a public health emergency of international concern. This will be the 3rd meeting of the committee on this outbreak.
PRESS RELEASE: 5 year old boy who traveled from DRC on 10 June and tested positive for #Ebola died this morning. 2 new confirmed cases of #Ebola- grandmother and a 3y/o sibling to the deceased are currently isolated in Bwera Hospital Ebola Treatment Unit.
@MinofHealthUG and the @WHO have confirmed a case of #Ebola Virus Disease outbreak in #Uganda. Although there have been numerous previous alerts, this is the first confirmed case in Uganda during the Ebola outbreak on-going in neighbouring Democratic Republic of the Congo.
The first #Ebola case outside #DRC has been identified in #Uganda - tragically a child. @WHO is setting up a rapid response team together with the @MinofHealthUG to prevent further spread of the disease.
Happy to share that we have made our first foray into ESCRTs and HIV! Our paper in eLIFE shows that CCL2 enhances HIV budding (excepting clade C) and release by mobilizing ALIX from F-actin. Requires ALIX. Clade C HIV does not require ALIX and is less fit.

New episode of the #science #podcast This Week in Virology #TWiV 549: The church of protocadherin http://bit.ly/2M8L2ZW @ChandranLab joins the #TWiV team to present their identification of protocadherin-1 as a cell receptor for New World hantaviruses #virus
Great to chat with @profvrr and #TWiV team, along with @Jangra_RohitK on behalf of all our authors. We had many setbacks, at one point for an entire year, but Rohit kept plugging away. When things stopped working, we joked about making offerings to the Church of Protocadherin 😁

Some context for today's @WHO meeting on whether the DRC #Ebola outbreak is a global health emergency: DRC will announce another 14 cases today. That totals 74 so far this week, making this the worst week, case-wise, of this 8+ month outbreak — with 2 days left in the week.
