  • STIA Annual Maloy Lecture
    STIA Annual Maloy Lecture Translating HPV and cell reprogramming research into clinical applications

    Dr. Richard Schlegel’s laboratory at Georgetown developed the technology for the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the HPV vaccine for use in June 2006. HPV causes almost all incidences of cervical cancer, which is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in women worldwide, and it is an increasing cause of oral cancers in both men and women. Dr. Schlegel’s laboratory has worked with support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to develop second- and third-generation vaccines that could be used to prevent HPV and decrease the incidence of HPV in the developing world, where almost all deaths from cervical cancer occur. This Event will be held on November 14, 2013 at 4pm ending at 6pm For more information click the link below
