Ebola vaccine overnight!

Hopp and Woods profileWould you think I was bragging if I said I could create an Ebola vaccine overnight?

Maybe I am bragging. Or, maybe I’m a biotech wizard who has been exiled for decades, who has wandered the scientific backwoods, and who now has reappeared saying I really can make an ebola vaccine overnight.

My methods are published, but not well known. I have written about my process in the scientific literature, in several patents, and in two novels. I wrote the novels, The Jihad Virus and The Neah Virus, in part to compensate for the fact that I have no laboratory in which to create vaccines. If the scientific and patent literature are too complex for you to assimilate, then I recommend the novels. They bring the science down to terms that I hope are understandable to those lacking a PhD after their names. The scientific papers and patents give the details.

But seriously, folks, if anybody out there happens to have a fully equipped protein chemistry lab they can loan me, I could use the methods I have described to create an ebola vaccine overnight.

The Jihad Virus describes the exact process I would use. The Neah Virus describes what it would (will?) be like if an ebola-type virus ever gets loose in the United States.

Given the news breaking in Texas, perhaps it’s time someone invited this old wizard in from the cold.
