Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Respiratory viruses (influenza virus, respiratory syncytial virus) and protozoan parasites (Plasmodium spp., Toxoplasma gondii, Leishmania spp.) continue to threaten public health worldwide. Although many efforts have been made to develop vaccines, effective vaccines are currently lacking for many of these pathogens. This Special Issue focuses on the development of vaccines based on virus-like particles and other platforms against respiratory viruses and protozoan parasites. We invite the submission of any original research articles and reviews on vaccine studies, and they will be highly appreciated.

Prof. Dr. Fu-Shi Quan
Guest Editor
