Virulence is a high impact open access journal focusing on microbial pathogenicity, the infection process, and host-pathogen interactions. The Bacterial Pathogenesis Section of Virulence covers outstanding original reports that significantly enhance our understanding about bacterial pathogens, their virulence mechanisms, and the interactions with their hosts and other microorganisms.
Subjects of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Bacterial virulence mechanisms;
- Molecular and cellular microbiology;
- Interaction with and manipulation of the immune system;
- Evolution and genetics of bacterial pathogens;
- Virulence regulation;
- Mechanistic studies in medical and veterinary microbiology;
- Molecular epidemiology;
- Emerging and reemerging of bacterial pathogens;
- Mechanisms of acquisition and dissemination of antibiotic resistance.

Section Editor: Dr Ohad Gal-Mor
Associate Professor, Department of Clinical Microbiology and Immunology, Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel-Aviv University
Dr. Ohad Gal-Mor was awarded his Ph.D. in Molecular Microbiology from Tel-Aviv University at 2003. He gained his post-doctoral training at the University of British Colombia in Canada, where he studied virulence mechanisms of Salmonella enterica. Dr. Gal-Mor is the director of the Infectious Diseases Research Laboratory at the Sheba Medical center, Tel-Hashomer Israel and Associate Professor at the Department of Clinical Microbiology and Immunology, the Faculty of Medicine, Tel-Aviv University. He teaches Clinical Microbiology and Virulence Mechanisms of Human Bacterial Pathogens at Tel-Aviv University and serves as the secretary of the Israel Society for Microbiology. The main interests of the Gal-Mor lab are virulence and resistance mechanisms of Salmonella enterica, host specificity and the interactions of various Salmonella serovars with their hosts.
