|Research Interests:||Carcinogenesis; Cell Biology; Biochemistry; molecular and cellular changes that accompany HPV-mediated transformation and in vitro progression of human epithelial cells, with an emphasis on HPV-induced alterations in signal transduction pathways associated with cell proliferation (epidermal growth factor pathway) as well as inhibition of cell growth (transforming growth factor-beta pathway); molecular signatures associated with early and late stages of HPV-mediated transformation and alterations in growth factor responses; environmental and genetic determinants of HPV persistence with the goal of identifying “biomarkers” that will predict risk of a cervical premalignant and malignant disease|
