Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is dedicated to the 3rd Symposium of the Canadian Society for Virology (CSV2020), which will be held in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, 3–5 June 2020. The symposium is the flagship event of the CSV that provides an important opportunity for Canadian virologists across different disciplines (basic, clinical, social, epidemiological, etc.) to meet and foster exchanges, thereby creating a broader base of research expertise committed to tackling global challenges of virus infections. Presentations will encompass a wide variety of virus-related topics, including Emerging and Re-emerging Viruses, Viral Immunology, Viral therapy, Structural Virology, Host-Virus interactions, Virus Ecology, and One Health. Symposium participants are invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of Viruses.
