Lauren Howard has to remind herself not to shout herpes in a crowded room
It’s not easy to do, having spent so much of her time discussing EEHV, or elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus. Lauren recently spearheaded an international workshop on elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus, a virus that causes fatal hemorrhagic disease in elephants.
