Dr Cornelia Liu Trimble, Professor in the Departments of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Pathology, an Oncology, is a physician scientist who is involved not only in elucidating the reasons that distinguish why some patients with human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated cancers progress while others spontaneously regress, but also in using these insights in developing and delivering novel immune therapies effective for HPV disease.
