The Comprehensive Cancer Center of the University of Puerto Rico (CCCUPR) last week presented 28 investigations on the human papillomavirus and other cancer-related topics at two international events in the United States.


“The importance of our participation in both events is that we are conducting high-caliber research,” CCCUPR Executive Director Dr. Marcia Cruz Correa said in a written statement.


In the forums, collaborations are established with colleagues from other states, enriching the research experience and providing professional exposure for the students involved.


The CCCUPR is a public corporation created in 2004 to address the need for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer in Puerto Rico, a disease that affects some 16,000 people in Puerto Rico annually.
