A unique research partnership between the U of L and University of Calgary has researchers using Highway 2 as a pathway to developing a greater understanding of the Hep C virus.
The University of Lethbridge is teaming up with the University of Calgary to take direct aim at Hepatitis C.
The goal of the two southern Alberta universities is to get a better understanding of the Hep C virus and potential new therapies. Hepatitis C affects more than 71 million people around the world and is linked to liver diseases and cancers.
Dr. Vanessa Meier-Stephenson says there are still a lot of unanswered questions about the virus in terms of how it causes liver diseases.
This collaboration between the U of L and U of C brings together the expertise of two of the province's most advanced research programs.
