The Zombie Institute is a world-renowned zombie research center. After the epidemic-scare of 2035, top scientists from around the globe have spent years researching the Gen-Z Virus - a fast-acting virus that turns humans into brainless undead. Humankind has been on the brink of a zombie apocalypse for some time, and The Zombie Institute has shown promise in the development of the antidote. Rumor has it that one of the research labs has discovered the cure. However, further clinical trials must be completed before the official announcement is made.
