The high risk human papillomaviruses (HPVs) are the most prevalent sexually transmitted infections and are responsible for 5% of cancers worldwide. These oncogenic viruses establish persistent infections in the mucosal epithelium. Dr. Campos' broad interests are towards HPV-cell interactions and the biology of capsid structure, viral entry, trafficking, uncoating, membrane penetration, and the innate cellular responses to viral infection. Ultimately his work will not only identify potential target molecules and processes for development of prophylactic antiviral drugs and compounds, but it will broaden our fundamental understanding of HPV biology and viral mechanisms of immune evasion and persistence.
