Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a viral infection that causes liver inflammation and scarring. Because symptoms of Hepatitis C are not easily identified, individuals are often unaware of the infection until the liver has already sustained extensive damage.

Researchers at the Emory National Primate Research Center are aiming to better understand the disease in order to develop a vaccine and more effective treatment options.
