Special Issue "Zoonotic and Emerging Diseases at Human-Animal Interface"
A special issue of Veterinary Sciences (ISSN 2306-7381).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2019).
Interests: zoonoses; host–pathogen interaction; evolution; genetics; disease pathogenesis; control of infections
In the last three decades, at least 30 new pathogens found in humans were zoonotic: New diseases are coming from animals and they do not respect regional boundaries. A significant progress is being made in understanding the evolution, epidemiology, host–pathogen interactions, devising next-generation control strategies, assessing socio-economic impacts and mapping global research opportunities.
To prepare for future outbreaks and build on existing knowledge of zoonotic and emerging diseases, this Special Issue calls for leading researchers to contribute their recent findings, especially focusing on, but not limited to:
- Epidemiology and Evolution
- Host-pathogen interaction
- Vaccines and immunity
- Next generation control strategies
- Socio-economic impacts
Manuscript Submission Information
