Human papillomavirus and cervical cancer: A translational research success story

About Professor Merilyn Hibma's research
Merilyn is a viral immunologist whose research interest is human papillomavirus (HPV) and cancer. She completed her PhD studies in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Otago, and her post-doctoral work was carried out at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund laboratories at the University of Cambridge, UK.

Much of Merilyn’s research has explored immune regulation by human papillomavirus, with a particular focus on viral regulation of antigen presenting cells in the skin. She has led the development of a collaboration to support implementation research for HPV screening in the Pacific and is part of a team that applies Kaupapa Māori methodology to explore the use of HPV DNA testing to maximise uptake in under-screened Māori. Her research continues to contribute to advances in basic biology of HPV and its clinical application to reduce the incidence of cervical cancer.

This lecture will be followed with light refreshments, tea, coffee and juice.
