The FEMS Journals and Oxford University Press recognise the best articles submitted to our journals, with each journal awarding a prize of €1,000 anually. The award also includes special marketing devoted to the winning articles to promote the author(s) research. All authors are automatically considered for the award upon submission of their papers. If the Editorial Board of a journal decides to award more than one article, then the prize money is split between the first authors of each paper.

This Thematic Issue of Pathogens and Disease explores the applications of mathematical models. This issue has a particular focus on host-pathogen dynamics and population health applications, as well as the future of biomathematical modelling in terms of big data analytics. It features outstanding articles that outline next-generation approaches to this field by using advance software approaches with mathematical frameworks to tackle problems in epidemiology and infection treatment.
