America’s response to the Ebola crisis in West Africa “is not just a test of our health systems; it is a test of our character as a nation,”  said President Obama in a speech to the staff of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on December 2. The President also lauded Dr. Francis Collins, Director of the NIH, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on the completion of Phase 1 clinical trials of a potential Ebola vaccine and NIH’s work on potential treatments for the disease.
