When asked what he would like to be remembered for as a Health Care Hero, Davey said, “I want to make a difference in human health. I would really like to find the drug that cures Ebola virus disease, but if I don’t, I would be happy if I can make a continued contribution to better understanding of what makes these viruses tick. These advances will help others to cure this and other similar viral diseases.”
