At the Institute, Nancy is currently working as the pathologist for Gene Johnson’s Ebola experiment. For the experiment, Johnson infects laboratory monkeys with strains of Ebola and then treats them with various drugs to see if any are effective against the virus. After the monkeys die, Nancy is responsible for determining the cause of death. As two of the monkeys have bled out during the night and will need to be dissected, Nancy will spend the day in a biohazard space suit.
