ESCMID’s Viral Hepatitis study group ESGVH publishes newsletter

The ESGVH newsletter has an update from the study group’s activities and a summary of the business meeting at ECCMID 2015 in Copenhagen. Other topics include the research and educational courses undertaken by the study group. If you are interested in becoming a member of ESGVH, please contact one of the study group’s board members.

ESCMID has received 126 Research Grant applications

With this year’s thematic limitation to projects related to bacterial infections and diseases, chances for success are higher for the applicants, who will be informed about acceptance by the end of February. Next year, projects dealing with fungal/viral/parasitic infections and diseases will be sought.
