"Elizabeth's Story" is about Elizabeth Griffin (pictured), the nonprofit foundation's namesake, who died in 1997 as a result of an ocular exposure to a macaque (monkey) virus. The exposure occurred at Emory University's Yerkes National Primate Research Center, where she was employed in primate research.
