DNA Tumour Virus (DNATV) brings together a diverse group of researchers with common research interests in the study of DNA tumour viruses.
These viruses include the polyomaviruses, papillomaviruses, adenoviruses, herpesvirus and other DNA viruses. These viruses have served as invaluable models towards understanding the process of cancer progression. In some cases the DNA tumour viruses are also clinically important pathogens that cause cancer in humans. The most notable examples are the human papillomavirus that are the cause of essentially all cervical cancers. Research of HPV and other DNA tumour viruses continues to progress rapidly and this meeting is a major forum for the dissemination of these findings. The DNATV meeting has occurred yearly for over 4 decades and over the years has showcased extraordinary breakthroughs in virology and cancer biology.
