“Is Sugar Sweet or Toxic for Cancer? Metabolic Reprogramming during KSHV Cellular Transformation”

“What Drives Papillomaviruses-Associated Cancers? It Isn’t All About p53 and Rb”

 Nancy Raab-Traub, PhD, Sarah Graham Kenan Professor of Microbiology & Immunology and Program Leader of Virology in the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
“Epstein-Barr Virus: A Multi-Pronged Attack on Cell Expression and Growth”

 Morning talks will be followed by lunch and a poster session. Please consider presenting a poster even if your work is not specifically related to viral oncology. We would like to encourage poster presentation by trainees broadly in the fields of virology and oncology. Our hope is to bring together scientists in these two disciplines to cross-pollinate ideas and seed collaboration. Prizes for the best posters will be given at 2:45 pm.
