Special Issue "Virus-based Vaccines"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2014)
Prof. Dr. Charles J. Russell
We are planning to publish a special issue of Viruses devoted to current trends in vaccine development for viral diseases. This issue will cover the diverse technologies that are currently being used for the development of rationally designed vaccines and will highlight both recombinant protein‑based vaccines and the application of genomic (e.g. RG‑based) technologies in vaccine research. Work on both animal and human vaccines will be considered.
In light of your expertise in the vaccine area, I would like to invite you to submit a review article on your subject for this special issue.
