Summary Infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) can cause a number of cancers, including cervical and anal cancer. The mechanisms by which an HPV infection progresses to cancer remain to be fully understood. Our research group, located at the Royal Women’s Hospital, leads a number of HPV projects on the epidemiology and molecular biology of HPV-related disease. The project on offer will involve the analysis of lesion biopsies to learn more about the development of cancer and identify new molecular targets for diagnosis. The candidate will perform techniques including the novel application of a powerful sample preparation method, laser cut microdissection, as well as molecular methods including PCR, sequencing, and methylation analysis.
