She did a lot of research on her own & needed an expert to bounce ideas off. She found a sympathetic receptionist who connected her with a scientist who over several calls, said "nope", "nope", "nope", "oh, uhmmm... yeah, that might work".

Who is she? I thought I read about her on boingboing, but I can't find it now. It's possible the writer is male, but I think I have that right.
I'm not clear on what the virus (or prion?) caused. Might be zombification or just death (pandemic).
