Standardization of quantitative cccDNA measurements
ICE-HBV participates to the DZIF-ANRS international research project on the standardization of quantitative cccDNA measurements.
The objective of this project is to develop reliable laboratory protocols for cccDNA quantification by comparing head to head different methodologies and by exploring new strategies to improve specificity of cccDNA qPCRs. Because of the need of international expertise and cross‐validation among laboratories, different research groups worldwide (both academic and from the industry) are currently involved.
The group includes members from Gilead Sciences.
HBV Cure Mathematical Modelling (coming soon)
ICE-HBV intends to foster the development of the following activities:
• Promotion and coordination of existing HBV cure events worldwide. Partnerships currently exist with the International HBV Meeting, the Science of HBV Cure, the ANRS Workshop on HBV Cure.
• Scholarship programmes for junior scientists and researchers from developing countries
• HBV cure prize for young investigators
