Rising 3rd year resident Dr. Shivani Sud and her faculty advisor physician-scientist Dr. Gaorav Gupta received recognition recently from the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center for their research into a simplified screening test for cervical cancer.

The test, based on a simple blood or urine sample, detects the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) the major cause of cervical cancer worldwide. Read more about this new research and its potential HERE.
