Now in four convenient volumes, Fields Virology remains the most authoritative reference in this fast-changing field, providing definitive coverage of virology, including virus biology as well as replication and medical aspects of specific virus families.

This volume of Fields Virology: Fundamentals, Seventh Edition, edited by Drs. Peter Howley and David M. Knipe, along with volume associate editors Drs. Lynn Enquist, Jeffrey I. Cohen, Eric O. Freed, Blossom A. Damania, and Sean P. J. Whelan, focuses on the basic principles of virology and reflects recent advances in this dynamic field.  


What is the content of "Fields Virology : Fundamentals Seventh Edition" ?

Bundled with the eBook, which will be updated regularly as new information about each virus is available, this text serves as the authoritative, up-to-date reference book for virologists, infectious disease specialists, microbiologists, and physicians, as well as undergraduate and graduate students interested in virology. 


  • Includes chapters on virus structures, essential viral functions, immune responses to viral infections, viral epidemiology, viral diagnostics, and viral therapies 
  • Up to date discussions of antiviral therapies and vaccine strategies 
  • Features more than 300 full-color illustrations, including key figures for use as lecture slides 
  • Provides quick, flexible access to current information both in print and in an improved eBook format 
  • Discusses virus structure, virus entry, replication, and assembly, virus-host cell interactions, host immune responses and vaccines, antiviral therapeutics, viral persistence and latency for HIV, and mechanisms of viral oncogenesis for HPV, KSHV and the hepatotropic viruses 

Newly revised Field’s Virology volumes, available in print and eBook format

Who are the authors of "Fields Virology : Fundamentals Seventh Edition" ?

Peter M. Howley : President of the Vallee Foundation, he is the Shattuck Professor of Pathological Anatomy and Professor of Microbiology and Immunobiology at Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA, and co-chief editor of the reference book Fields Virology.

David M. Knipe is the Higgins Professor of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics and interim Co-Chair in the Department of Microbiology and Immunobiology at the Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts and co-chief editor of the reference book Fields Virology.

Lynn W. Enquist is Henry L. Hillman Professor Emeritus in Molecular Biology and Professor in the Princeton Neuroscience Institute at Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, USA.

His research interests are in the field of neurovirology, specifically on the mechanisms of herpesvirus spread and pathogenesis in the mammalian nervous system. His laboratory focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms by which neuroinvasive alpha-herpes viruses invade and spread in the mammalian nervous system and how the nervous system responds to infection. His laboratory develops and uses imaging technology to define the molecular mechanisms of neuronal spread and subsequent pathogenesis. His work has also lead to the development of these viruses as tools to trace neuronal circuitry in living animals. He has published over 280 peer-reviewed papers, reviews, books and has 4 patents.

He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology and the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences (AAAS). He currently is the president of the American Society for Microbiology and the founding editor of the Annual Reviews of Virology.

Jeffrey I. Cohen : Chief, Laboratory of Infectious Diseases, Chief, Medical Virology Section, NIH, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Bethesda, MD, USA.

Eric O. Freed : Senior Investigator, Center for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute, Frederick, MD, USA. Dr. Freed is recognized as a leader in the field of virus assembly who has made important strides in understanding the mechanisms of retroviral replication at the molecular level, with an emphasis on late stages of the HIV-1 replication cycle.  As Director of the HIV DRP, he oversees a program of basic, translational, and clinical research aimed at developing a better understanding of HIV that can be used to generate more-effective treatment strategies.  

Blossom Damania is a virologist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She is known for her work on oncogenic viruses that cause human cancer. Damania has also been serving as Vice Dean for Research at the UNC Chapel Hill School of Medicine (North Carolina, USA) since 2016.

Sean Whelan : British-American virologist. He is known for identifying the cellular protein used as a receptor by Ebola virus, for defining the entry pathway that rabies virus uses to enter neurons, and for identifying the ribosome as a possible target for antiviral drugs. In July 2019, he was announced as the new Chair of the Department of Molecular Microbiology at Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis, Missouri, USA.
