Although the association between EBV and a variety of human diseases is well documented, how the virus contributes to the pathogenesis of these different diseases remains only poorly understood. This Special Issue seeks to synthesise new knowledge of EBV’s contribution to the pathogenesis of the wide range of associated diseases, focusing, not just on cancer, but also on other associations; for example, autoimmune disorders. In doing so, it will bring together emerging new themes in EBV biology, while at the same time attempting to define the important outstanding research questions in the field. It will also highlight how our developing knowledge of how virus–host interactions are perturbed in disease could help to inform the development of novel therapeutics and diagnostics for patients with EBV-associated disorders.
