Making science work for development

Ebola Research Database

The attached Ebola Research Database contains information on all current academic research relevant to Ebola that we have been informed about. This information sharing is designed to support alignment between research funders in order to reduce undue duplication and help develop complementary activities where enhanced effort is required. 

The UKCDS Secretariat is compiling information that is sent to us from research funders whether they are public, private or charitable bodies.  We would therefore welcome you sending this page to other such organisations you are aware of to encourage organisations to send us their data.

The database aims to capture those research projects that have been launched in direct response to the West African Ebola outbreak but will not seek to represent on-going research in Ebola or West Africa more generally. It is designed to capture information at the specific research project level, within funding calls.

UKCDS do not take responsibility for any awarded grants that may have occurred that aren’t represented on the database. Organisations that do not appear on this database may still be funding work related to Ebola, which do not have a research focus.

If you would like to share information, please download and fill in the blank template and send to j [dot] wilsonatukcds [dot] org [dot] uk.

The Ebola Research Database was last updated on 10 February 2015. "Version 2.4”

Evidence Aid is also working with partners to compile evidence-based resources on Ebola. One such resource is a collection of published articles, which Evidence Aid is creating with the publisher Wiley. See the Evidence Aid's list of resources here.
