Commenting on his appointment, Dr. Spilki noted that:


Zoonoses can and should be a relevant communication channel for researchers working on the frontier of emergence and re-emergence of new pathogens. The integrated actions of research groups in the search for pathogens with potential impact on public health from the natural environment to their primary circulation in human populations, including surveillance, diagnosis, mitigation and therapeutic measures, are topics of interest to societies and have in Zoonoses an appropriate communication channel.


We look forward to working with Dr. Spilki and Zoonoses editorial board members to further advance the journal’s goal and publication scope, and more importantly, to promote international research related to medical sciences, veterinary sciences, and public health. We also extend our sincere appreciation to all our authors, reviewers, readers, and editors for their continued support for Zoonoses.
