Collection: Hepatitis C

The 2020 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine was awarded to Harvey J. Alter, Michael Houghton and Charles M. Rice for their discovery of Hepatitis C virus. In celebration of what they started and showcasing areas of research that have since emerged, we here present a collection of articles from the BMC Biology, BMC Medicine, Genome Medicine and the BMC Series Journals on biology, diagnosis and treatment and wider public health and medical outcomes of the Hepatitis C virus and its infection.
