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.
