Center for HPV Research
The Center for HPV Research at IU School of Medicine is a world-class group of physician scientists focusing on human papillomavirus (HPV)-related research and offers research training and translation. Under the leadership of Gregory Zimet, PhD, and Dennis Fortenberry, MD, of the Department of Pediatrics, the Center supports the professional development of junior faculty who engage in trans-disciplinary HPV research, provides pilot project funding, and engages in community participation.
The group of scholars affiliated with the Center for HPV Research represents a growing synergy between the disciplines of medicine, health marketing, psychology and public health. The center’s work benefits from IU School of Medicine’s interdisciplinary research culture and infrastructure.
Community outreach is an important part of the Center for HPV Research’s work to prevent HPV infection and HPV related cancers. The Center also disseminates research findings relevant to health policy advocacy.
