Project outline: Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a widespread pathogen and one of the most important environmental risk factors in human cancer epidemiology. Although current antiviral treatments control HBV infection and improve liver functions, they are unable to clear the viral episomal DNA called cccDNA (for covalently closed circular DNA) that persists in the nucleus of infected cells and serves as a template for HBV transcription. The project will focus on the study of cccDNA transcriptional regulation, chromatin structure and nuclear localization. Part of these studies will involve collaboration with other laboratories.

The Institut Pasteur is a non-profit private foundation dedicated to fundamental research in human biology and microbiology through basic science, education, and public health activities.
