Trending topics in Infectious Diseases in China

Research on infectious diseases has saved millions of lives, through preventing transmission, managing symptoms and treating infections. Keeping track of globally trending research topics can help healthcare providers make the best decisions for their patients. It can also help researchers make decisions about the direction of future projects, and provide input for institutions to develop their research strategies.

We have put together a collection of trending articles in Elsevier’s infectious disease journals to put a spotlight on some of the most popular research today, with a focus on research coming out of China. The articles are free to access until February 28, 2018.
