Title: Immediate Early Events of the HPV Life Cycle: Playing Hide and Seek with Host Defenses

Speaker: Martin Sapp, PhD / LSU Health

Host: Laimoinis Laimins, PhD


Infection with high-risk HPV types is the cause for up to 5% of all human cancers, especially of the cervix, the oropharynx and the anogenital tract. I will be presenting our latest findings regarding the infectious entry and intracellular trafficking of HPV virions to establish infection using relevant cell culture models. Our findings suggest that HPV has evolved unique mechanisms to achieve infection without being sensed by host cell innate immune sensors.
