My name is Advait and I’m a recent Molecular Biology graduate, and currently in the Accelerated Masters Program (AMP). For the past 3 years, I’ve worked in the Campos Lab at the Bio5 institute, where we study Human Papillomavirus (HPV)— the leading cause of ~90% of cervical cancer cases. My current research projects involve the anti-viral enzyme known as cGAS (cyclic GMP-AMP synthase) that is a DNA sensor which binds DNA and stimulates an immune response. It’s a very cool enzyme, and I hope to figure out how HPV is stifling its function because we have some evidence suggesting that.

In my spare time, I love to play soccer, but also recently got into basketball (since no one plays soccer in AZ in the summer).
