Several types of cancer are associated with virus infection. For example, human papilloma virus (HPV) infection can lead to cervical cancer. My research group studies the mechanisms of viral entry and host response to viral infection. By developing a better understanding of cellular response to viral infection, we can devise new ways to fight viruses that are linked to cancer.
