Department Name: Immunology and Microbiology - CA
Position Type: Full Time

Position Summary:

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is a major health burden worldwide with 240 million chronically infected individuals. Nucleotide analogs and interferons are the current standards of care due to their suppression of HBV replication, but the treatments fail to eradicate HBV from individuals. Therefore, new strategies are absolutely required to cure HBV. Our laboratory recently identified a novel approach showing solid premises to provide such a cure.

A postdoctoral position is immediately available to study the cure of HBV using in vivo and in vitro HBV infectious models.
