The Institute for Hepatitis and Virus Research (IHVR) - also known as
the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Institute – performs translational
research in its labs and has as a complementary mission, the nurturing
of its research for development, as well as promotion and enhancement
of biotechnology in Bucks County and the surrounding region. This is accomplished
through two important IHVR programs that are supported by a grant from
the Ben Franklin
Technology Partners of Southeastern Pennsylvania.
