Hepatitis C and Related Viruses

Group leads: Prof Jane McKeating, Dr Peter Balfe

Our Research group

Our research interests are focused on the molecular biology of HCV, with particular emphasis on the role of the cell surface receptors in the viral life cycle, both in terms of the primary interaction of the virus with the host and with reference to the humoral immune response to HCV, which involves antibodies targeting to this process.
