Question #10000244

In the movie CONTAGION, what was Dr. Ally Hextall's position?

One of my favorite movies, which has actually inspired me to think about entering the medical field, specifically epidemiology or pathology. I was wondering though, and I have wondered for a while now, what was Dr. Ally Hextall's doctorate in? Was she an epidemiologist or what? It seems she spent most of her time in BioSafety Level 4 labs, so I take it she may be an epidemiologist. Remember, Dr. Hextall portrayed by Jennifer Ehle and she is the one who worked alongside Dr. Ellis Cheever to create a vaccination for Meningoencephalitis Virus-1 If anyone can pinpoint exactly what she is would be extremely helpful, as I wish to look into studying to be whatever type of doctor she portrayed...
