Cancer and Viruses

Some viruses can lead to cancer. For example, human papillomavirus (HPV) can cause cervical and other cancers, Epstein–Barr virus can cause many types of lymphoma and hepatitis B or C viruses can lead to liver cancer. CCR researchers are studying the mechanisms through which viruses infect cells and are identifying new viruses that may be associated with cancer. We invite you to meet some of our principal investigators conducting research in this area.
