Tulane University School of Medicine immunologist Robert Garry has been named one of Foreign Policy magazine’s 100 “Global Thinkers of 2015” for his groundbreaking work developing a rapid Ebola test.

Each year Foreign Policy selects the leading global thinkers whose contributions and work have changed lives and are shaping the world. Garry and a team of collaborators have been working more than a decade in Africa to fight viral hemorrhagic fevers like Ebola and Lassa virus. His group developed the world’s first rapid Ebola test, which the Food and Drug Administration approved for emergency use in West Africa earlier this year.
