Jiaren Sun, MD, PhDHepatitis C virus is the major cause of chronic liver disease worldwide, and there is no vaccine for the control of infection. Using an array of immunological tools in our laboratory, we are currently working to comprehend why immune responses in some individuals lead to viral clearance while in others result in chronic inflammation. Additional research efforts are directed at seeking hepatitis C virus vaccines and exploring the potential of the immune system in antiviral defense.
