Research Interests

"I am interested in the role of infectious agents in human cancers. In the past, my group worked initially on Epstein-Barr virus in Burkitt's lymphomas and nasopharyngeal cancer. Subsequently, we concentrated on human papillomaviruses in cervical and other human cancers. Presently, we analyze the role of polyoma-type viruses in human malignancies."
