Assoc. Prof. Merilyn Hibma - Understanding human papillomavirus immune regulation in the skin

Friday, 25 July 2014 at 1:00pm - D’Ath Lecture Theatre, Hercus Building
Langerhans cells are the only antigen presenting cells located in the epidermis, the site of human papillomavirus infection. We have reported that Langerhans cells are regulated by cancer-causing HPV types in humans. A contributory mechanism for HPV regulation of Langerhans cells and the impact of Langerhans cell regulation by HPV on immune function will be described. Unraveling these regulated pathways and down-stream consequences on immunity to HPV will help inform the development of an effective immunotherapy for virus associated premalignant lesions.
