Scripps: Scientists Awarded $4.6 Million for Hepatitis C Vaccine Research

Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have been awarded a five-year, $4.6 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study the human immune response to hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and designs for an infection-preventing vaccine.

The grant will support the establishment of one of the NIH-funded Hepatitis C Cooperative Research Centers at TSRI to research the host immunological response to HCV infection. The Research Center will be led by TSRI Associate Professor Mansun Law, who will partner with TSRI Assistant Professor Jiang Zhu.
