Baylor University College of Medicine works closely with the Houston Zoo

Dr. Paul Ling is associate professor in the Department of Molecular Virology & Microbiology at Baylor University and is working on two projects: one human related (the latency of the Epstein-Barr virus) and one animal related. As Thane Maynard learns from Dr. Ling in this episode of Field Notes, he is working with the Houston Zoo on the growing problem of elephant herpes virus and its sometimes fatal impact on the animal.
