The 2nd Asia Pacific Rickettsia conference (https://www.rickettsia.net/index.html) will be held on 3–6 November 2019 in Chiang Rai, Thailand, and selected papers will be published in this Special Issue. The conference title is “The Ever-Changing Threat of Rickettsial Diseases”. Rickettsiae and rickettsial diseases are a major cause of illness in humans and animals throughout the Asia–Pacific region. A wide range of pathogens, including members of the genera Anaplasma, Bartonella, Coxiella, Ehrlichia, Orientia, and Rickettsia, are responsible. This conference is of interest to medical doctors, veterinarians, public health professionals, epidemiologists, diagnostic laboratory personnel, entomologists, and scientists.
The conference subthemes will include:
- Historical perspective
- Host, pathogen, vector interactions
- Pathogenesis, pathophysiology, cell biology
- Genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics
- Immunity, vaccine development, prevention
- Public and policy engagement
We look forward to the contributions from the 2nd Asia Pacific Rickettsia conference.
