Join us on May 17th-19th 2019 for the 17th UK Hepacivirus and Flavivirus meeting.

Held at Rydal Hall, in the Lake District, the UK Hepacivirus and Flavivirus meeting is a fantastic environment for sharing your latest work. We pride ourselves in a supportive and relaxed atmosphere, which makes the meeting an ideal platform for students and postdocs. The meeting also includes ample time for exploring the local hills and discussing your work with national, and international, experts in all things flavivirus.

We look forward to welcoming you to Rydal Hall in May!

On behalf of the UK HCV and flavivirus community we would like to express our shock and sadness at the recent death of Marcus Dorner. 

Marcus made many important contributions to the research of HCV and other hepatotropic viruses. His good nature and great science will be sorely missed. 

We would like to send our condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.
