Description of the showcase
At HepBCommunity we want to encourage more conversations between the scientific and affected communities so that we can all learn from each other.

To do this, we are inviting hepatitis B researchers around the world to showcase their research. We welcome research of all kinds: basic, translational, clinical, public health, social science, etc. They will describe why is their research is important, how they do it, and what’s exciting about it in a thread on HepBcommunity.

You will have the opportunity to ask researchers questions about their research. The best questions will be in the running to win a $100 USD gift card.

Forum members will also be able to cast votes to decide on the most engaging researchers, who will have the chance at winning a $250 USD gift card.

How to enter as a forum member
Just ask questions in the research threads and don’t forget to cast a vote for the researchers you enjoy the most!

Hi all,

Apologies if you have been trying to comment on these wonderful scientific entries and been denied. I’ve adjusted the settings so that everyone can now reply to the threads and ask their questions.

Just a reminder, we have prizes not only for the best thread, but also for the best questions, so get engaged!

Cheers,
Thomas
