1. Germ Theory App Systemizes Containment of Ebola & Other Infectious Diseases

    The recent news regarding Ebola highlighted the difficulty we have in tracking the spread of infectious diseases and retroactively identifying people at risk, once a patient has been diagnosed. Harvard School of Public Health research scientist Eric Ding and Hack Reactor staff member Ryan Stellar have been developing a different, more effective system that combines epidemiology and technology. Stellar worked with a team of five Hack Reactor students to build an app that could, one day, save lives.
