than others, and which groupings gave better synergy, we could put together a better cocktail."

One unique aspect of this program is that nearly everyone in the field is contributing antibodies. "It will not be this lab's cocktail versus that lab's cocktail," Saphire said, "but an agreement, based upon a blinded study, that what we've put together is the best treatment possible from what is available in the world."

Funding from the grant will also go to TSRI Assistant Professor Andrew Ward for studies using electron microscopy, a different technique for studying molecular structures. TSRI Professor Dennis Burton will contribute antibodies for the study.

Another part of the program is to develop antibody cocktails to fight other hemorrhagic fever viruses such as Marburg, Sudan and Lassa viruses.

The other institutions and scientists on the NIH National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Centers for Excellence in Translational Research (CETR) program grant, number U19AI109762, include Gary Kobinger at Public Health Agency of Canada, John Dye at U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, Kartik Chandran and Jonathan Lai at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, Leslie Lobel at Ben Gurion University, Julius Lutwama at Uganda Virus Research Institute, Robert Garry and James Robinson at Tulane University, Thomas Geisbert at University of Texas Medical Branch, Yoshihiro Kawaoka at University of WisconsinMadison and Gene Olinger at NIAID. Biopharmaceutical companies on the grant include Mapp Biopharmaceutical (Larry Zeitlin), Zalgen labs (Luis Branco) and Cangene (Cory Nykiforuk).
