Welcome to the 2015 Nicholson Lecture by Dr. Charles M. Rice, Rockefeller University with an introduction by Dr. Hans Rosling, Karolinska Institutet.

Dr. Charles M. Rice, Maurice R. and Corinne P. Greenberg Professor in Virology, Rockefeller University, New York, USA. Globally, an estimated 130 million people are infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV), a major cause of acute hepatitis and chronic liver disease, including cirrhosis and liver cancer. There is currently no HCV vaccine, and although new antiviral drugs were recently approved and are clinically available, more will be needed to combat resistance and target all genotypes. Dr. Rice’s lab focuses on understanding virus replication, host responses to infection and developing new therapies to treat HCV and other viral pathogens.

Refreshments will be served after the lecture. Please register here so we know how many to cater for! (deadline extended)
