Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent efforts to study immunity against viruses using suitable animal models have greatly contributed to advancements in the field of viral immunity. These efforts have endeavored to identify or generate animal models with an immune system which resembles that of humans. In this special issue dedicated to “Animal models to study viral immunity”, we are extending an open invitation for submission of primary research papers and review manuscripts relating to the use of animal models that provide insight into the nature of immunity to viruses in humans. We hope that your critical contributions to this special issue will ultimately lead to an improved understanding of viral immunity in humans.
