MEETING SUMMARY
Infection with Human Papillomavirus is the main cause for the development of anogenital carcinomas, and a leading cause of oropharyngeal cancer. Molecular, cellular and immune events triggered initially by viral proteins and later on, also by the host orchestrate the development of cancer. Health care policies are essential for prevention, detection and treatment of HPV associated cancers. Nowadays, many countries still struggle with these diseases.
In this workshop we will discuss HPV-associated malignancies from different perspectives, from epidemiologic aspects to molecular interactions between viral and host cell proteins to immunology. We will also focus on HPV detection and screening, disease biomarkers research, prophylaxis and therapy.
We are looking forward to foment interactions and collaborations between researchers and clinicians attending the workshop.
