Statement Regarding Ebola Letter

It has come to our attention that a letter is circulating about Ebola testing of Ukrainian citizens, purportedly from The Scripps Research Institute. This letter is a forgery and no such letter has been issued. As a nonprofit biomedical research institute, we conduct no patient testing; our work is focused on finding future therapies to prevent and treat human disease.
