Scientists, clinical researchers, students and others actively engaged in Hepatitis research and related studies or with a strong interest in the field.


Other organizers may offer a lengthy list of specific objectives that they want to see their meetings accomplish.

Mangosteen’s objectives are broader and more simple:

To create a true forum for open (interdisciplinary) discussion in the field of Hepatitis research,

To help encourage members of the research community - from both the developed and developing worlds - to get talking, and thinking.

The results and successes of this meeting are not in the hands of the organizer, but are very much in the minds and the futures of the participants.
