    Biography
      Dr. Colleen Kraft is an infectious diseases-trained physician and a clinical microbiologist. She is a member of the leadership group for the Serious Communicable Diseases Unit at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, GA. She was one of the physicians in the care of patients with Ebola virus disease and Lassa Fever at Emory University Hospital from 2014-2016. Dr. Kraft is a co-PI for the National Ebola Training and Education Center, a federally funded collaborative between Emory, Nebraska Medicine, and New York Health and Hospital-Bellevue. She is also the PI on the NIOSH PPTL contract to evaluate elastomeric respirators in the healthcare center. Her vision for the Serious Communicable Diseases Unit is to use the subject matter expertise that was gained from the care of these patients with special pathogens and bring those lessons into everyday healthcare.

    Abstract:

    The Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa in 2014-2016 was the largest of its kind in history.  This was the first outbreak that involved a randomized clinical trial for therapeutics, and the first where affected individuals were repatriated to other countries. Knowledge regarding Ebola virus disease dramatically increased during this outbreak, and more was learned clinically, epidemiologically and scientifically.  This lecture describes the advances from this outbreak in the context of the current outbreak that is occurring in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.  

    Learning Objectives: 

    1. Know the current status of the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo
    2. Understand the current state of therapeutics for Ebola virus disease
