The lab publishes a new paper in Journal of Virology out this month. It's about how HPV E7-mediated degradation of PTPN14 changes epithelial cell biology. We're also represented on a new collaborative publication with Dev Basu's lab, in which they develop a powerful new patient-derived model of HPV-positive cancer.
We are very happy to welcome Kaeri Martinez, a Penn SUIP summer student, to the lab this summer. Kaeri is a rising senior at Brown University.
The lab is thrilled to be 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.
