General Research Interest

Head and neck cancer, human papillomavirus, infectious-disease tumor associations

Research Description

The principal focus of the Gillison laboratory is to investigate the role of human papillomavirus infection in head and neck malignancies, from cohort studies of oral HPV infection to genetic indicators of response to chemoradiotherapy.

Transinstitutional Work

The Gillison laboratory has several ongoing collaborations with the Centers for Disease Control, USA, the National Cancer Institute, USA, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Dr. Gillison is also a member of the head and neck steering committees of the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group and the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group.
