Vaccines Against Hepatitis C: Harnessing Immunity to Eliminate Global Hepatitis C

From 24 to 25 March 2022

The Moving from Hepatitis Discovery to Elimination: NIH [U.S. National Institutes of Health] Research Advancing Hepatitis Elimination webinar series will kick off in 2022 with a deep-dive symposium on the latest research related to HCV vaccine development, hosted by the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

Over two days - 24 and 25 March - eight speakers will discuss results from clinical trials for past candidate vaccines, new findings in HCV immunology and implications for vaccine development, and emerging vaccine platforms, such as mRNA, that could be applied to HCV. Nobel Laureate, Dr. Michael Houghton, will close the symposium with his thoughts on the opportunity of HCV vaccine development within the next decade.
