Welcome to the White Laboratory
We're virologists and cancer biologists who study how human papillomaviruses interact with and alter the host cellular environment. Our goal is to understand how viruses cause cancer and impact immune responses.
Some great news in a challenging time - the lab is awarded our first NIH R01. The grant will support our research on how HPV oncoproteins inhibit epithelial differentiation. We are grateful for the support of mentors and collaborators and for a fantastic lab team.
Elizabeth presented a (virtual) poster at the 2020 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, and the lab started its first ever work-from-home hiatus during the coronavirus pandemic. We are thinking of our colleagues working hard on SARS-CoV-2 and hope to be back in the lab soon!
