Tony Holý Lectures

Every year, one of the regular IOCB Invited Lectures, which host top scientists from around the world, is dedicated to the memory of Prof. Antonín Holý, whose molecules help treat millions of patients with HIV or HBV.

The tradition was started in 2015 with a lecture given by Dr. John C. Martin, one of the key collaborators of Antonín Holý, without whom many life-saving drugs based on these molecules would never have existed.
