Vaccines for Neglected Tropical Diseases

Expert Review of Vaccines is looking for submissions to the Special Issue ‘Vaccines for Neglected Tropical Diseases’ with Professor Vasso Apostolopoulos as the guest editor.

Significant progress has been made toward eliminating or reducing several of the Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs), however it is still estimated that 1 billion people are affected by NTDs globally. The special issue will bring together experts in the field to produce a comprehensive issue of the journal, highlighting our current efforts to develop vaccines against NTD's.
