The 2020 Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded jointly to Harvey J. Alter, Michael Houghton and Charles M. Rice “for the discovery of Hepatitis C virus.” Their discoveries led to the creation of a test for HepC, which can cause cirrhosis and liver cancer, and antiviral drugs to treat the infection. Join Dr. Donald Anthony to learn about how these three men represent three crucial stages in the research of this blood born pathogen.
