Coronaviruses are a diverse family of viruses. In addition to those that infect humans, there are numerous coronaviruses that infect other species, often causing significant animal welfare and economic impacts. This talk will focus specifically on animal coronaviruses discussing knowledge of virus replication, previous cross-species transmission events, diseases and vaccination approaches.
The 'Connecting on coronavirus: the expert hub' webinar series is supported by our official journals, Immunology and Clinical & Experimental Immunology.
