Looking back to the 20th International Symposium on Hepatitis C Virus and Related Viruses

Approximately 420 international researchers attended the 20th International Symposium on Hepatitis C Virus and Related Viruses in Melbourne from October 6–10, 2013.

Since the discovery of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in 1989, significant advances have been made in understanding the molecular biology and host response to this significant pathogen, many of which have been presented at this symposium.

HCV2013 was a great success, bringing together the international HCV research community to share and discuss the latest advances in HCV research. 

Although we are in a new phase of HCV therapy, there remain significant gaps in knowledge regarding the HCV life cycle, pathogenesis of disease, and the development of an effective vaccine. This highlights the importance of HCV research.
