Interests: regulation of immune responses and lymphocyte recirculation; development of protein and DNA vaccines; animal models for human diseases; infectious diseases
In the last few years there has been a renewed interest in the development of veterinary adjuvants and vaccines, taking advantage of novel technologies in genomics, immunology and infectious diseases. As a result important breakthroughs have been achieved that will shape the way infections of production animals and wildlife will be tackled in the future.
This special issue considers these new advances and their implications in the field of veterinary vaccines. The interplay between human and veterinary vaccine development will also be considered. With increasing threads including the emergence of drug resistance and novel infective agents these “Advances in Veterinary Vaccines” will become critical in the future.
