Former Bardwell graduate student  Lt. James Regeimbal Jr. is featured in a New York Times online slide show, Braving Ebola, of photographs and interviews of workers and survivors at an Ebola treatment center in rural Liberia. He is photo 17 in the show. A microbiologist, his job is to "kill the virus," he says. 

TIME magazine has also just announced that this year's "person of the year" will be Ebola fighters. "I guess that means he shares the prize," says proud mentor, Jim Bardwell.
