Spatio-temporal Stochastic Models for Phenotype and Gene Regulation by the Human Papillomavirus

Project description

A mathematical model on HPV infection

Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) are responsible for many types of cancer, such as cervical cancer. Although recent evidence on the mechanism of HPV infection brings the scientific community a step closer to the development of new antiviral drugs, there are still missing pieces to the puzzle. The EU-funded STEPV project is interested in the HPV gene network and how it is regulated to control infection. Researchers plan to develop a mathematical model that overcomes existing limitations and specialises in HPV infection. They hope to use this model to link genotype with viral persistence and fuel future research into elusive aspects of HPV infection.
