  • Engels, Eric A., M.D., M.P.H
    HIV- and AIDS-associated cancers. Solid organ transplant-related cancers. Cancers associated with other immune-related conditions.


  • Koshiol, Jill, Ph.D
    Infections and inflammation in association with hepatobiliary cancers
  • Kreimer, Aimée R., Ph.D
    Epidemiology of human papillomaviruses (HPV) infection and resultant cancers at multiple anatomic sites, including the oropharynx, cervix, and anus.


  • Liu, Zhiwei, Ph.D.
    Dr. Liu studies the etiology and prevention of cancers caused by Epstein-Barr virus and hepatitis B virus. He leads multi-disciplinary studies and develops international collaborations to address challenges in epidemiology in relation to infections and immune variation.


  • Mbulaiteye, Sam M., MBChB, M.Phil., M.Med.
    Unraveling the role of infections, immunity, and genetic factors in the etiology of Burkitt lymphoma, a malignancy that is endemic in Africa and whose risk is substantially increased in the setting of HIV/AIDS.



  • Rabkin, Charles S, M.D.
    Molecular mechanisms of infection- and inflammation-related cancers, particularly for gastric cancer and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) as a co-factor with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), the established cause of most cancers of the noncardia stomach.


  • Shiels, Meredith, Ph.D.
    Research includes: Quantifying cancer risk and burden in people living with HIV; estimating the impact of risk factors on changing cancer rates over time; and understanding rising rates of premature mortality in the United States.
