Frontiers is an award-winning Open Science platform and leading Open Access scholarly publisher. Our mission is to make research results openly available to the world, thereby accelerating scientific and technological innovation, societal progress and economic growth. Covering more than 600 academic disciplines, our 90+ journals are led and peer-reviewed by editorial boards of over 100,000 top researchers.

Frontiers in Tropical Diseases is a collaborative and multidisciplinary journal publishing cutting-edge research on the pathophysiology and control of diseases that occur solely or predominantly in tropical regions of the world with a focus on integrative prevention, control and treatment methods as well as the challenges associated with them in the most vulnerable populations. By bringing together international input across all disciplines of tropical medicine involving clinicians, parasitologists, entomologists, infectious diseases specialists, epidemiologists, policy experts, health economists and medical anthropologists in one place, we aim to provide a comprehensive and open access platform on the latest research in tropical diseases.

The Major Tropical Diseases section of Frontiers in Tropical Diseases will explore the mechanisms, epidemiology and multipdisciplinary research into the major tropical diseases of the 21st century, including malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, cholera, hepatitis and diarrheal diseases.

Editor and Journal Manager attending this meeting

Bruno Bezerril Andrade, Specialty Chief Editor, Major Tropical Diseases – Frontiers in Tropical Diseases

Bruno Bezerril Andrade is a Senior Researcher at the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation, Brazil. His research is dedicated to identifying reliable host biomarkers that can predict susceptibility to infection and disease severity in a wide range of diseases such as malaria, leishmaniasis, tuberculosis and HIV. Himself and his network of collaborators have been able to design and establish large cohort studies in which synchronisation of clinical and immunologic data collection results in validation of biomarker findings across countries.
