John Doorbar has studied Human Papillomaviruses and the life-cycle of HPV’s for many years, and currently has interests in viral tropisms, latency and the different strategies used by the high and low-risk papillomavirus types. Following a recent move from the National Institute for Medical Research in London, he is now Professor of Viral Pathogenesis at the Department of Pathology, University of Cambridge, and Heads the MRC funded Papillomavirus Research group in the Division of Virology. His work encompasses the molecular biology of viral protein function as well as clinical aspects of disease progression and diagnosis using novel biomarker combinations to establish disease severity.
