Every 2 minutes somewhere in the world a woman dies of cervical cancer – a cancer caused by infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV), and is a preventable disease. Currently, there are 3 prophylactic virus like particle (VLP) vaccines being developed, using sophisticated recombinant molecular techniques and protein expression. In this talk, Professor Dame Margaret Stanley shares her work on the human papillomavirus and the current vaccination schemes for HPV . She is currently an Emeritus Professor of Epithelial Biology in the Department of Pathology, Cambridge. She also serves as the Vice President of the International Papillomavirus Society (IPVS) and is very active in advocating for HPV vaccination. In 2010, Professor Stanley was given the Lifetime Achievement Award by the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (ASCCP) for her contributions to cervical cancer and cervical precancers research.
