One man has a lot of MERS on his mind....

Professor Christian Drosten heads a sizable, very friendly and diverse team of scientists seeking to understand all aspects of the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV). 

And not just understand, but also to detect, educate, vaccinate and generally interrupt MERS-CoV transmission in camels and to and between humans. 

That's a heckuva lot to think about.

From the First WHO-EMRO Training Workshop on MERS-CoV Laboratory Diagnostics in cooperation with the Central Veterinary Research Laboratory (CVRL).
