The Kirby Institute is a leading global research institute dedicated to the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases.

The Viral Hepatitis Clinical Research Program (VHCRP) is one of the largest research programs within the Kirby Institute. The program focuses on therapeutic research in viral hepatitis, including research into HIV/Hepatitis co-infection. The program also has a substantial laboratory research sub-program that utilises samples collected within hepatitis clinical protocols. The VHCRP is responsible for the management and coordination of a large number of studies across an extensive network of national and international clinical sites where the studies are performed.
