The individual works at Alcon in Fort Worth, according to a staff email seen by CBS
Alcon incorporated and with corporate headquarters, in Hünenberg, Switzerland, is a global medical company specializing in eye care products. Alcon's U.S. headquarters are located in Fort Worth, Texas. Alcon has been purchased by Novartis from Nestlé and there have been confirmed information indicating high likelihood that Alcon will soon also be merged with the new parent company.
A Texas site is preparing to manufacture the experimental Ebola drug ZMapp, says Robin Robinson, director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), a division within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Robinson adds that Novartis’s (NYSE: NVS) vaccine facility in North Carolina is a possible second site to make the drug. Those sites were developed previously in partnership with a U.S. government effort to establish response centers capable of manufacturing drugs and vaccines in an emergency.

Thank you for starting this thread. Starting threads using my phone is difficult and it would have taken me forever to do so.
Your efforts are greatly appreciated as I believe this information could be significant.

Isn't it sort of a conspiracy that all the drug companies are trying to find a patentable drug instead of finding a way to make people be able to fight the disease on their own better? Why not ask people there who had the disease for a little blood to help others in their communities fight the disease. The blood would be a simple and cheap choice.
Oh yeah, I forgot that isn't a conspiracy, it is the American way.

The only thing weird about this is the connections you people try to draw. I used to work in the biotechnology field. I can say without a doubt that if you attend one tradeshow, you will see people from every company in the field. And half the time is spent checking out new things and the other half is mingling among the attendees and the hot marketing ladies...
Hmm, wow, amazing, a nurse and someone working for a biotech company met up and started dating. Sound the alarms guys.
You know, it's not weird at all since there are trade shows and conferences and get togethers every month of every year, with every name you can find in the biotech world.
