About Us

HCV Research UK is a consortium of leading figures in the UK from the clinical and scientific community with specific interest in hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Its principal objective is to establish a national clinical research database and biobank (a bank of samples) for promoting research studies into HCV infection. Our aim is to create a multidisciplinary infrastructure that links major UK liver centres involved in management of HCV-infected patients to basic science centres of excellence. Within this consortium are also links to the Health Protection Agency (HPA) and Health Protection Scotland (HPS), i.e. the national bodies responsible for monitoring HCV infection in the UK.

To achieve these aims, HCV Research UK has been funded by the Medical Research Foundation (MRF) to establish a national cohort of up to 10,000 HCV-infected people recruited from medical centres across the country. This proposed cohort size will support research into a diverse set of questions that are critical for understanding key issues associated with HCV infection such as what factors determine spontaneous clearance of the virus, response to drug therapy, and development of liver disease including cirrhosis and liver cancer.
