FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Research scientists at Colorado State University are helping develop an Ebola vaccine that could protect soldiers and the public from the deadly disease, the university announced Monday.

BioMARC, a high-containment biopharmaceutical facility operated by CSU, is manufacturing the vaccines for the U.S. Department of Defense for use in human clinical trials. There's no approved Ebola vaccine, and the Colorado State lab will make small amounts of the vaccine for testing purposes.
