Infections and Immunity

A special thematic issue meant to cover the various aspects of emerging infectious diseases, problems, and solutions to deal with possible infections of future.

Amidst the present pandemic, there has been a lot of talk about the role of immunity in handling the outbreak. A sudden surge of information on various aspects of immunity in infections has ignited curiosity and awareness among the common people about the role and scope of immunity.

The University of Delhi, Daulat Ram College ( ) hosted a 3-day International Conference on “Infections and Immunity” on 8-10 Oct 2021 with aim towards a global collaboration between scientists, research scholars and students working on various aspects of immunology from different research organizations, medical institutions, NGOs, and reputed Universities, to share their ideas and discuss the solutions. The selected full length articles from speakers, participants and other scholars will be published in special thematic issue.

This special issue is meant to cover the various aspects of emerging infectious diseases, problems, and solutions to deal with possible infections of future. It will bring together the knowledge of the paradigms of infectious diseases and the recent researches related to this area including the role of both innate and acquired immunity. It also aims to explore the role of vaccine and the challenges in vaccine development against the infectious agents. The special issue will include articles on recent therapeutic and diagnostic tools in tackling infections, developments and challenges in vaccine and immunity with emphasis on most recent research findings.

Themes of special issue and associated Session of Conference are:

  • Infections: Bacterial, Viral and parasitic
  • Vaccine design and efficacy of immune system 
  • Immune system and cancer
  • Genomic surveillance of infection agents
  • Role of Artificial intelligence in disease treatment 
  • COVID-19 treatment and Management

Biosensors for Detecting Imbalances of Life Systems: Role of Materials and Methods in Improved Outcome

Special issue on Biosensors: materials and methods
Lead 20 program

Any deviation or imbalance from homeostatic state of steady internal physical and chemical conditions in living systems, generally falls under category of disease. Chances of bringing them back to normalcy or closer to healthier state with therapeutic interventions are found to be more successful when they are applied at very early stage. Biosensing has emerged as a process to achieve early detection of deviations in such homeostatic states via evaluation of physiological, chemical, or biomolecular parameters in the subjects. The two main components on which efficiency of biosensors rely are materials used as platform technology and methods of detection used for the task. In this issue we will be assembling recent advancements in the field of Biosensors in terms of used materials and methods in achieving high sensitivity, specificity and predictability in form of original research.

Immunoendocrine regulation of energy homeostasis and male reproduction

Male reproduction and its intricate neuroimmunoendocrine regulations open a wide scope of scientific interventions. Male infertility, being responsible for about half of the overall global infertility cases, represents a complex pathophysiological mechanism. Crosstalk among the endogenous immune and endocrine mediators may affect male gonadal functions. Since male reproduction is fine-tuned by orchestrated regulation of reproductive hormones and immune regulators, a better understanding of these chemical regulations will potentiate further research in this direction.

This issue aims to summarize the current knowledge on the hormonal and immunological regulations of male reproductive functions in physiological and pathophysiological conditions of male reproduction.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Energy homeostasis  and male reproduction
  • Immunoendocrine regulation of male reproductive functions
  • Adipokines and energy metabolism in male fertility
  • Obesity and male infertility: energy imbalance to inflammation
  • Endocrine regulation of epigenetics of reproductive tract inflammation
  • Altered energy metabolism and immune regulation in aged men
