Allergy, Immunology, and Pathogen Epigenetics
Section Editor: Georges Herbein
Associate Editor: Kari Nadeau
This section publishes high-quality and innovative research generated from basic science, animal and translational clinical studies that focus on epigenetic regulation in the induction or control of allergic disease, asthma and other immune responses and on epigenetic mechanisms involved in infectious diseases. Research on the application of epigenetic analyses to the prediction, diagnosis, and treatment of allergic disease, inflammation and infectious diseases are particularly welcomed. These may also include reports on the interface between environmental exposures and epigenetic changes when important to allergy, asthma, immunology, inflammation and infectious diseases. The studies on the epigenetic regulation of viral and bacterial infections are welcomed. Research on epigenetics of virus-induced cancers is also in the scope of this section. Laboratory studies that report on potentially new epigenetic targets related to allergy, asthma, immunology, inflammation and infectious diseases will also be considered.
