JDOHaD Themed Issue: COVID-19: Impact of viruses on DOHaD

The Journal of Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (JDOHAD) is calling for papers that study the impact of viruses on DOHaD. This may be studies of the impact of a viral infection on fetal, childhood or adult health, the impact of antiviral treatment on fetal, childhood or adult health or the lifelong impact of an epidemic/pandemic from a social, health or psychological perspective. The issue is driven by the current COVID-19 pandemic but studies of the impact of any virus or treatment for any viral infection is welcomed as long as the study has a DOHaD focus.

Submissions will be accepted anytime until June 30, 2021. Upon acceptance, papers will be available online and indexed on PubMed.

The themed issue will be led by Prof Janna Morrison; however, we seek expressions of interest for additional guest editors. Please contact if you are interested.
