USAID’s ‘Grand Challenges’ To Test Potential Ebola Innovations

New York Times: Contest Seeks Novel Tools for the Fight Against Ebola
“The well-prepared Ebola fighter in West Africa may soon have some new options: protective gear that zips off like a wet suit, ice-cold underwear to make life inside the sweltering suits more bearable, or lotions that go on like bug spray and kill or repel the lethal virus.
