In this issue, APBN features the development of MERS-CoV vaccine, antibodies and prevention.
The feature interviews include: Professor Jiang Shi Bo and Dr Michael Whitt. An additional interview includes a coverage of Shantou University Medical School, Dean Prof. Bian Junhui.

As a graduate in Epidemiology and a continuous learner in population & policy studies, I have opened up the theme and touched base on:
i) the genetic evolution in High-Altitude Tibetans’ Survival,
ii) Clinical trials in Traditional Chinese Medicine,
iii) HIV transmission and viral diversity,
iv) Climate Change and Solutions,
v) An upcoming largest health data mobile app – Healthkit.

A new section Columns is introduced in APBN, and it comprises a selection of writings from our editors at World Scientific Publishing.
