The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has affected almost every part of the globe with millions of cases and over a million deaths. The pandemic has had a significant global economic impact and addressing it systematically requires significant efforts from researchers, healthcare workers and governments.
The COVID-19 Pandemic: Epidemiology, Molecular Biology and Therapy covers relevant aspects of this viral pandemic including information about the SARS-CoV-2 pathogen (morphology, genome, proteins, structural protein genes, replication), global epidemiology, transmission, risk factors, clinical manifestation, management, host immune response, pathogenesis, diagnosis, therapeutic agents (antivirals, natural compounds) and vaccines. Readers will find basic and advanced knowledge about the disease organized into simple and easy-to-read chapters about the disease, making this book a handy and comprehensive reference for general readers, academicians and biology students, alike.
About the Editor:
Dr. Shama Parveen is an Associate Professor at Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Basic Sciences, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, India. She completed Ph.D (Microbiology) in molecular epidemiology of respiratory syncytial virus from the Department of Microbiology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi. She has been actively involved in clinical and basic research in the Molecular Biology of human viruses like SARS-CoV-2, Dengue, Chikungunya, Zika and respiratory syncytial virus. Her work on clinical research relates to the analysis of viral strains across the globe keeping in view their ever-changing evolutionary trajectories and resultant epidemiology. The basic research involves cloning, expression, purification and structural characterization of different viral proteins and identification of their potential inhibitors. Dr. Parveen has published more than 50 papers in journals of repute that have around 2000 citations. She was awarded the prestigious Sayeeda Begum Women Scientist Prize 2018 for the significant scientific contribution. She is also member of National Academy of Sciences India (NASI), Allahabad, India.
