Congratulations to Lei Wei for being invited to present a Young Scientists Choice Lecture at the Hepatitis B Foundation and Blumberg Institute! Aptly titled “Making a murderer – Formation of Hepatitis B virus (HBV) Genomic cccDNA,” Wei’s talk showcased his research on how HBV cccDNA is formed during the viral life cycle. We’re very proud that Wei was selected to give such a prestigious talk!
Says Wei, “Hepatitis B Foundation and the Baruch S. Blumberg Institute are the leading forces combating hepatitis B viral infection and liver cancer, which claims close to a million lives every year. It was a great honor to meet the world-leading scientists and physicians in the field and hear their feedback on our work. I would love to thank the organizers for their generous invitation and our lab members for their tremendous support.”
