Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue, entitled “Advances in Rabies Research 2023”, continues the series dedicated to research on rabies, following “Special issue on Advances in Rabies Research”, which was specifically focused on the molecular biology of rabies in order to better understand its viral transmission dynamics,  vaccination strategies, and rabies diagnosis (

The aim of this Special Issue is to continue to collect novel contributions in the field of rabies research, providing new insights and addressing research on unresolved issues. Evolution, structural biology, viral replication, virus–host interaction, pathogenesis and immunity, clinical virology of medical and veterinarian relevance, gene therapy, and novel antiviral strategies are a just selection of topics relevant to research in the field, and can be contributed to this Special Issue.

The Special Issue is associated with the conference “XXXIII Rabies In The Americas“ (RITA) international conference, which will now be taking place in Bogota, Colombia, in October 2023, as an on-site event. RITA is a conference that has been held every year since 1990 by the United States of America, Canada, and Mexico, and more recently by Brazil and Argentina, as well as other Latin American countries; it aims to connect researchers, national and local directors of programs, laboratory workers and all those in the Americas and in other parts of the world who are involved in the surveillance, prevention and control of Rabies. RITA conferences are events strictly centered on all aspects of rabies research and provide excellent opportunities to focus on research topics in this area. Symposium participants, as well as all researchers working in the field, are cordially invited to contribute original research papers or propose reviews to this Special Issue of Viruses.
