Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
This is an example of an applied research. Applied research
is usually undertaked to examine and delve into a specific set of existing
circumstances. Its prime goal is to try and match the research results to a
particular area of interest. This means therefore that applied research employs
data and applies it into real world situations. Researchers applying this kind
of reseach aim at predicting a specific set of behaviour in a specified
location. Given the case above, the reseach will aim at predicting how the
Ebola virus behaves and try to come up with a mitigating vaccine that will be
able to arrest it. As such, this is
purely a case of applied research.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
