  1. Resource Description
    "Dr. Hernandez's research focuses on infection and cancer. Viruses associated with human cancers include human papillomavirus (HPV), hepatitis B and C, Epstein-Barr virus, human herpesvirus 8, and Kaposi's sarcoma. These infectious agents influence the development of cancer through varied mechanisms including interaction of viral genes with host tumor-suppressor genes, integration of virus into host DNA, and the establishment of persistent or latent infections. Understanding the role of host response to infection is also key to elucidating the mechanism of viral carcinogenesis."
