Congratulations to Hep Hero Professor Peter Revill

June 22, 2022

LiverWELL Hep Hero Professor Peter Revill was awarded an AM (Member in the General Division of the Order of Australia) in the 2022 Queen’s Birthday Honours for significant service to microbiology and immunology research.

Professor Revill heads a research laboratory at the Royal Melbourne Hospital’s Doherty Institute. His research into the molecular virology of the hepatitis B virus has advanced a general understanding of the virus; in particular how hepatitis B causes liver cancer and the development of new approaches to cure hepatitis B.

In addition to his research work, Professor Revill has worked locally and internationally to highlight the importance of finding a cure for the hepatitis B virus worldwide. He is a co-founder of the International Coalition to Eliminate Hepatitis B, an executive member of the Australian Centre for HIV and Hepatitis Virology, and a member of the Australian Centre for Hepatitis Virology, the Australian Virology Society and the Victorian Infection and Immunity Network.

LiverWELL congratulates Professor Revill and his research team on this honour, and their continuing work to highlight the impact of heightened awareness around hepatitis B.
