Through the Science Exchange Collaborative with Ventana Medical Systems, University of Arizona faculty will have access to distinguished speakers Ventana periodically invites to Tucson. The Collaborative's next lecture will be delivered by Cornelia Trimble, MD, professor, Department of Gynecology & Obstetrics, and director, Johns Hopkins Centr for Cervical Dysplasia.

Cervical squamous cell carcinomas develop from premalignant cervical intra-epithelial neoplastic (CIN) lesions that are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection. This cancer is highly preventable with the HPV vaccine.

A major focus of Dr. Trimble, who is certified in both obstetrics/gynecology and pathology, is to prevent the development of cervical cancer. Dr. Trimble and her team have demonstrated the effectiveness of strategies that allow the generation of immune responses and may lead to the elimination of cervical HPV disease.

Due to limited space, these seminars are available to the first 20 UA faculty members who RSVP. Please contact Matt Peters, mwpeters@email.arizona.edu, to RSVP.
