The Katzenellenbogen Laboratory conducts research on human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is a very common infection, affecting more than 75% of the adult population. HPV is categorized as high-risk or low-risk, based on its association with cancer; nearly 5% of cancers worldwide are caused by HPV. In the Katzenellenbogen Laboratory, the focus is on the host-pathogen interactions that activate oncogenic pathways and dysregulate typical cellular processes to permit cancer development and progression of HPV-associated cancers. The laboratory conducts fundamental molecular biology studies and works to link those models of disease to true pathophysiology in people.
